Brilliant! Sir Alex awakes and asks his Darren: How'd Doncaster get on?

Alex Ferguson 'awake and talking' after brain surgery

"All of us are united right now, wishing Sir Alex a speedy recovery".

The 76-year-old remains in intensive care, with the world of football and beyond anxiously awaiting an official update on his condition.

The Manchester Evening News reports that former United defender Rafael da Silva "broke down in tears" when he found out that Ferguson had suffered a brain haemorrhage.

He said: "No, I can only think that if there is any relation it is a positive relation".

Ryan Giggs spoke of his shock but said his former Manchester United boss was "a fighter" and was hopeful the Scot would quickly bounce back.

"I was with him on the pitch last week, I went to see him in the box after the game on Sunday".

Sir Alex had the operation in Salford Royal Hospital.




Ferguson was rushed to hospital and operated on, but was placed in a coma for his own safety.

And another source close to Manchester United said, 'Of course he'd love to be at Kiev on May 26 to see his former star player Cristiano Ronaldo in action for Real Madrid against Liverpool.

United have already qualified for next season's Champions League and just need a point to guarantee finishing in second place behind arch-rivals and title winners Manchester City who were presented with the Premier League trophy at the weekend.

Following Madrid's 2-2 draw against Barcelona, Ronaldo said: "How am I supposed to celebrate when the person who taught me to play football is suffering in the hospital?"

"He is such a legend in my eyes". They are the two players who are not available for tomorrow [Thursday]. Only Ferdinand was not a product of the club's remarkable youth system under Ferguson, and it is Defoe's memories of watching them succeed as they did that contributed to his admiration for the manager.

The haemorrhage, a bleed between the skull and surface of the brain, can cause speech loss and paralysis.

"However, in the immediate aftermath there is everything to fight for and the potential for a full recovery, albeit sometimes after a long period of rehabilitation".
