  • Alex Ferguson 'sitting up and talking' - report

The Mail Online has reported that surgery went "very well" and was sitting up talking to family and friends at Salford Royal Hospital on Monday.

The 76-year-old former Manchester United manager - football's most decorated boss of all time - suffered a brain haemorrhage at the weekend.

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.

Sir Alex retired in 2013 as one of the most successful football managers of all time when he made the bombshell announcement he was leaving after 26 years at the helm of the Old Trafford club.

"If not in the Premier League, who knows, we still have a big match waiting for us".

"I can only think that if there is any relation it is a positive relation", he added.

United hasn't issued an update on Ferguson's health since saying Saturday that he required "a period of intensive care to optimize his recovery". Ferguson is believed to have said to his family.

"He is such a legend in my eyes. He told me he's doing a lot of exercise, he looked very happy".

"It's sad, but I know his character". Doctors remain cautious but are hopeful of a full recovery.

Queiroz replace departing manager Vicente del Bosque in Real Madrid in the summer of 2003 but returned to United as assistant coach in July 2004. But I am thankful to Manchester United because they had a nice gesture.

"All of us are united right now, wishing Sir Alex a speedy recovery. He has been a unique and fundamental figure in the football world over the last few decades".

Yesterday his long-term rival Arsene Wenger paid tribute to Ferguson following Arsenal's 5-0 victory over Burnley. God knows everything so I hope he can help him.

His response to treatment is said to have given encouragement and optimism to everyone close to him.

"We can all stay positive and all say a prayer for him and hopefully we can get a positive outcome". He's a strong man and an optimistic man. He also led them to four Scottish Cup trophies, a Scottish League Cup, a UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and a UEFA Super Cup.

As such, The Sun - on their front page spread - has revealed details of the former Man Utd boss' first words after waking from the op.

"I spoke to him when I joined Norwich".

Giggs was just one of many youngsters that Ferguson nurtured from the United academy to stardom on the worldwide stage.

It perfectly sums up both Ferguson the footballing man and Ferguson the family man.
