Alex Ferguson no longer needs intensive care following emergency surgery on the brain haemorrhage he suffered Saturday, his former club Manchester United has said.

"Sir Alex Ferguson no longer needs intensive care and will continue rehabilitation as an inpatient", a club statement read.

Ferguson is Manchester United's most successful manager ever and one of the most decorated in world football having won 13 Premier League titles, two UEFA Champions Leagues and a bunch of other trophies in 27 years at the helm at Old Trafford. Lukaku gave an optimistic update on Tuesday about his prospects of recovering from an ankle injury in time for the FA Cup final, and Mourinho said: "That's what we try".

Concise News had reported that the former United manager is now out of intensive care.


A few days, Wenger started his farewell speech at the Emirates stadium by wishing a speedy recovery for Ferguson.

'It's not going to be easy, but he's a strong person.

When asked if Ferguson's condition would have an impact on the team, he said: "No, I can only think that if there is any relation it is a positive relation".

"[The club] are positive, they are very positive". Wishes and prayers to him and I hope he makes a full recovery'.


The Co Fermanagh man described Sir Alex as a "calm person, who was like a father to me".

'This friend of mine, he is not doing too well, ' Cantona said in a video on Eurosport's official Twitter feed captioned: The Commissioner of Football. "He is like a mentor to me, he nurtured me, he never judged me".

Not only have the 20-time English champions failed to win the league since Ferguson's retirement, but they have failed to once finish above big-spending local rivals Manchester City.
