Manchester United 'confident' of Ferguson recovery - Mourinho

Ferguson has been in hospital since the weekend where he underwent surgery on a brain haemorrhage.

"As well as being uppermost in the thoughts of our own players, past and present, Sir Alex has been the subject of many warm and touching comments from other clubs, governing bodies and individuals in the handsome game".

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.

Darren Ferguson missed Doncaster's last game of the season on Saturday to visit his father in hospital.

"I was with him on the pitch last week. I also praise his family for their support", Queiroz said.

"I think the way I work with my assistants, I give them very good conditions for their evolution and I think Michael can be very positive for us".

All of us wish Ferguson the very best in his recovery.

And he has brought Star Warsback to Cannes for the megawatt premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story . This is, by its very nature, a glamorous, fantastic, spectacular festival", Blanchett said.

The 76-year-old has received support from a host of football's biggest names, including rivals Liverpool and Manchester City, and Cristiano Ronaldo. "Football is not full of them - and not just football, society is not full of them, so when you find one of them you have to value them and you have to keep them".

You can take the man of football but you cannot take football out of the man.

Sadly, the answer to the question wasn't a good one with Doncaster suffering a 1-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic but the very question was simply heart-warming and perfectly sums up the man. I know he has that fight in him. I understand that this is a special person.

But as The Sun revealed today the 76-year Scot had stunned family members after coming around from surgery, by asking how his son Darren's team Doncaster had done.

Neurosurgeon Peter Hamlyn wrote in The Telegraph: "The most common form (of haemorrhage) for a man of his age with a history of cardiovascular issues is intracerebral, in which there is bleeding within the brain tissue, causing irreparable damage to those cells".

Operations to relieve the pressure of excess blood in the brain, as has been the case with Ferguson, are crucial if sufferers are to avoid brain damage or even death.

The club's stars said they were "overwhelmed" by the legend's plight.
