Alex Ferguson Regains Consciousness After Head Surgery

Alex Ferguson Regains Consciousness After Head Surgery

Manchester United has not given any further update since Saturday when a procedure on the haemorrhage had gone "very well", but that a period of intensive care is needed to optimise his recovery.

The Daily Mail reported that the former Manchester United manager was still in intensive care "but was sitting up talking to family and friends at Salford Royal Hospital" on Tuesday (NZT).

Following Madrid's 2-2 draw against Barcelona, Ronaldo said: "How am I supposed to celebrate when the person who taught me to play football is suffering in the hospital?"

"He is such a legend in my eyes".

"Now is the time to pray and hope he can make a full recovery."Defender Phil Jones, one of a handful of players signed by Ferguson who is still at the club, added: "I know his character. Hopefully, he'll recover well".

Ferguson's family and Manchester United are yet to release official information on his health.

Writing on his personal blog United star Juan Mata wished Ferguson a "speedy recovery" and vowed that the team will work hard to "honour" the Scot's "winning mentality".

Finally, with Michael Carrick set to retire at the end of the season, Mourinho admitted that the central midfielder will start Sunday's game against Watford - though nothing was said of his potential outing against the Hammers. But we are positive.

In the five years that have followed he has still been a regular presence at United games.

"Obviously he is such a giant of a man in football, and the interesting thing is that everyone who has crossed his path has described him as something of a father figure", he said. I just stayed calm and spoke to a few people at the club to get a bit of a rundown on how he was doing. I have the utmost respect for him as all the players you speak to will have.

"This is often life-saving surgery and aims to reduce any long-term disability Sir Alex might suffer with this form of stroke".

"Aye, the Cup Final is out - but what about Kiev?" he said.

Manchester United lost 2-1 to La Liga giants Sevilla in the Champions League round of 16.

This is a massive relief for supporters and indeed those all around the world.
