Sir Alex Ferguson 'awake and talking to family' after brain haemorrhage

Preston boss Alex Neil has wished fellow Scot Sir Alex Ferguson a speedy recovery after the former Manchester United manager underwent emergency surgery following a brain haemorrhage.

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

United full back Ashley Young spoke to talkSPORT about how Ferguson's health scare has affected players and staff at the club.

"(I am) just devastated, absolutely devastated", said Jones, who was signed for United by Ferguson in 2011.

Although no official updates have been provided since, the Daily Mail have provided uplifting news that he is now out of a coma and is "sitting up talking and asking about his results" after citing friends of Ferguson.

'But I gather that the operation has been a success.

'I'm hoping he pulls through for a full recovery and my best wishes go out to all his family'.

Sunday saw runaway winners Manchester City, United's local rivals, receive the Premier League trophy as Guardiola added an English title to the Spanish and German ones he won in charge of Barcelona and Bayern Munich respectively.

And the great and good of the footballing world shared their well-wishes for Ferguson who is said to have complained of being unwell since Thursday.

That request has been widely followed and it has been left to the men that played for and against him, as well as managers and football fans, to pay their own dues. He misread the difference between Everton and Manchester United, which is like going from a yacht to a cruise ship.

Carrick told MUTV: "I got a text on Saturday evening and I couldn't quite believe it".
