  • David Beckham celebrates with manager Alex Ferguson after Manchester United claim the title after the FA Premier 1996

The Daily Mail reports Ferguson has reportedly been sitting up and talking to family and friends, after undergoing emergency surgery.

"The prognosis is good and his closest friends in football are being kept abreast of any developments", a source told The Sun newspaper.

The 76-year-old was admitted to Salford Royal Hospital on Saturday, much to the shock of the football world.

However, Manchester United, the club he managed for 26 years, have said the surgery went "extremely well" and the Scot is recovering in intensive care.

Ferguson retired a champion in 2013, lifting the Premier League trophy for a 13th time to take the club's haul of English championship crowns to a record 20. I have the utmost respect for him as all the players you speak to will have.

Sir Alex Ferguson was still a regular spectator at football matches after retiring as Manchester United boss. "Sending prayers and love to [wife] Cathy and the whole family".

The next few days are said to be "crucial" in Ferguson's recovery according to a former player of his, with Ryan Giggs the latest to share his thoughts and well wishes like much of world football. You can only hope and pray that everything is going to be OK.

The Wales manager said he is praying for Ferguson (76) - who he calls the biggest influence in his life - to make a full recovery. Hopefully, he'll recover well.

Legendary Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, is reportedly out of coma.

The sign put up to commemorate Ferguson's time at United, near Old Trafford, has disappeared and was presumed stolen with the council moving to order a replacement.

United have thanked the many well-wishers, including Premier League managers Arsene Wenger, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, who have spoke of their admiration for Ferguson.

"I have had the chance to know him and his wife", said the Italian.

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

Jones' team-mate Juan Mata also sent his good wishes, saying the news had had a "huge impact" on the club and called on United to use Ferguson's winning mentality for the remainder of the season.
