Sir Alex Ferguson is out of a coma and talking to friends and family at his bedside at the Salford Royal Hospital as he begins his recovery from a brain haemorrhage.

The 76-year-old Ferguson retired from managing in 2013 after nearly 27 years in charge of Manchester United but he has continued to regularly attend matches and participate in UEFA coaching initiatives.

Since, then the club have remained silent and following Mourinho's comments are expected to continue to do so until any further notice from the Ferguson family.

"How did Doncaster get on?' he is said to have asked before discussing the crucial showpiece matches both United and Liverpool face this month".

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.

They will be trying to shrug off the distraction of Sir Alex Ferguson's ill-health and concentrate on getting the point they need to seal second place in the Premier League at London Stadium. "He means a lot to me, as he does to this club".

"Of course he has qualities that we believe can make him a good coach and there are many ways to do the bridge between player and coaching staff".

"I hope he pulls through - not so long ago he was presenting Arsene Wenger with that trophy".

Mourinho also revealed club captain Michael Carrick will start the last game of the league season against Watford at Old Trafford on Sunday in what is set to be his final appearance.
