The family of Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson, have said that the 76-year-old is showing signs of recovery as he has been 'sitting and talking' in hospital after his brain surgery.
“Surgery went very well and the 76-year-old’s response to treatment has given encouragement and cautious optimism to those close to him,” the report said.
“However, they recognise it will still be a slow road to full recovery as he continues to be assessed.”
“The prognosis is good and his closest friends in football are being kept abreast of any developments,” a source told The Sun newspaper.
Ferguson is considered the most successful manager in the history of British football. He won 38 trophies in more than 26 years in charge of United, including 13 Premier League titles and the Champions League twice.
