The English giants confirmed that former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is out of intensive care following emergency surgery on a brain haemorrhage on Saturday.
United confirmed on Wednesday night that Ferguson “no longer needs intensive care” as their former manager recuperates after a brain haemorrhage.
Wednesday José Mourinho offered encouragement regarding the 76-year-old’s health. “We are very, very positive,” he said. “We are confident.”
Ferguson’s wife Cathy and their sons Darren, Jason and Mark have been at his bedside. They are said to be “pleased and extremely encouraged” by his progress.
Ferguson is also said to have joked about attending the Champions League final.
His family have been overwhelmed by the level of support and good wishes but continue to request privacy as this will be vital during this next stage of recovery.
