Ferguson 'out of coma, talking to family'

Sir Alex Ferguson out of a coma after surgery on brain haemorrhage

The Sun reports that former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is "awake and talking" in hospital after undergoing emergency surgery for a brain haemorrhage.

"This Saturday, all of us were overwhelmed by the news about Sir Alex Ferguson's health condition", Mata said.

Several sports personalities had rallied to support Ferguson when the news of his emergency brain haemorrhage surgery broke on Saturday.

Accompanying the picture was the message: "Keep fighting Boss. Sending prayers and love to [wife] Cathy and the whole family".

Carrick was brought to United by Ferguson in 2006, the midfielder going on to become the club's captain. Wenger enjoyed a long, and at times fractious rivalry with Ferguson as they battled for Premier League supremacy in the first decade of the Frenchman's long reign in charge of Arsenal.

It is understood that Ferguson has been speaking to visitors to his bedside.

And the 76-year-old revealed that his recovery will reluctantly mean that he will be unable to attend United's FA Cup final against Chelsea. But I gather that the operation has been a success. We wish him all well and to recover very quickly.




Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United players arrived for training on Tuesday morning boosted by the news that Sir Alex Ferguson's heath was improving.

Jones is one of those now at United who was signed by Ferguson, having joined from Blackburn in 2011, and the England worldwide has described how pivotal his old manager was in helping him settle in. Now is the time to pray and hope he can make a full recovery.

Vincent Kompany tweets Hang in there Sir Alex. "But Sir Alex needs plenty of rest and will have to follow his consultant's strict instructions to recover fully".

"I'm hoping he pulls through for a full recovery and my best wishes go out to all his family".

And the great and good of the footballing world shared their well-wishes for Ferguson who is said to have complained of being unwell since Thursday.

'If he had greatly diminished consciousness and severe weakness, then the chances of making a good recovery are a lot less'.
