Alex Ferguson 'showing signs of recovery' after haemorrhage

Well wishes from across the worlds of sport, politics and television have flooded in for Sir Alex Ferguson after news that the former Manchester United manager had surgery for a brain haemorrhage. "But Sir Alex needs plenty of rest and will have to follow his consultant's strict instructions to recover fully".

"(I am) just devastated, absolutely devastated", he said.

"You can only hope and pray that everything is going to be OK".

Scotland's First Minister and SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon joined Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson in tweeting their best wishes for Sir Alex.

Chelsea boss Antonie Conte said: "I have had the possibility to know him and his wife and to understand that this is a special person".

But, asked about the feeling among the squad, many of whom have written heartfelt messages on social media, and their hopes for a full recovery, Mourinho said: "We are very positive, we are confident".

"The most important quality is to be a man, M-A-N, capitals, a proper man and football is not full of them", said Mourinho.

"In this case, it's not about me, it's about the club".

After last Friday's 1-0 loss at Brighton & Hove Albion Mourinho criticised Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford but he has been pleased with their response.

"Also the fact he's brought talents to England and shown that you can actually use homegrown talent right through to the first team - look at David Beckham for example".
