Sir Alex Ferguson is ‘awake and talking to doctors about his results’ having undergone emergency surgery following a brain haemorrhage on Saturday night, according to reports.
The football world was sent into shock when it was revealed the former Manchester United had been admitted to Salford Royal Hospital and sent into emergency surgery, which was described as having gone “very well”.
Tributes and messages of goodwill have since poured from all corners of the football world and indeed beyond for the Scotsman.
And according to the Daily Mail‘s James Tozer, friends of Sir Alex have revealed he is in a stable condition and discussing results with doctors as he remains in intensive care.
This report emerged on Monday night but no official word from the club – or more reputable news outlets, for that matter – has been provided concerning Ferguson’s condition. Man United may provide an update on Wednesday afternoon to go in conjunction with Jose Mourinho’s press ahead of the trip to West Ham United on Thursday night.
You can only hope that the Mail, just this one time at the very least, have based this report off something genuinely substantial. The football world continues to wait anxiously for good news about an internationally revered figure.
