Alex Ferguson out of coma and speaking to hospital visitors

Sir Alex Ferguson

Football legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson showed early signs of recovery after undergoing an emergency surgery.

The 76-year-old, however, remains in intensive care at Salford Royal Hospital surrounded by close friends and family, where his road to full recovery is expected to be a slow process.

The 76-year-old was United manager from 1986 to 2013, winning the Champions League twice, the Premier League 13 times and five FA Cups.

However, he did say everyone at the club was optimistic that the United great would recover. "He has been the biggest influence in my career, both on and off the pitch".

"I can only think that if there is any relation (to the club's mood), it is a positive relation", he said.

SIR Alex Ferguson is believed to have suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage, which can be confused for a stroke and causes similar speech loss and paralysis.

"He is such a legend in my eyes".

"It's sad, but I know his character. Hopefully, he'll recover well".

David Moyes replaced Ferguson as manager at United, and revealed he was "devastated" when he heard the news.

News of his recovery will provide the Manchester United squad with a boost ahead of their game against the Hammers, where they will be looking to bounce back from a shock defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion.

United midfielder Michael Carrick, who played under Ferguson, has spoken of the respect in which his former boss is held. "He has been a unique and fundamental figure in the football world over the last few decades", said the Spaniard.

It is understood that Ferguson has been speaking to visitors to his bedside. "At the moment I am in a bit of unknown territory", said Wenger.

"He told me he is doing a lot of exercises, and he looked very happy but that kind of accident can happen".

"It was a tough night on Saturday and we were waiting for some positive news". He also led them to four Scottish Cup trophies, a Scottish League Cup, a UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and a UEFA Super Cup.

Television presenter Eamonn Holmes, a longtime friend of the football hero and fervent Manchester United fan, described him as an "amazing man". 7 may one of the doctors said "the next 48 hours will be decisive".
