Alex Ferguson out of coma and speaking to hospital visitors

Groom receives wedding card written by Sir Alex Ferguson just days before brain haemorrage

TEHRAN, Iran national football team head coach Carlos Queiroz says Alex Ferguson is in his prayers after the Manchester United legend underwent emergency surgery following a brain haemorrhage.

Sir Alex had the operation in Salford Royal Hospital.

One of the earliest indications that the 76-year-old was unwell came via the absence of his son Darren Ferguson from Doncaster Rovers" final game of the season when he cited "family reasons' as his explanation. This was because his son Darren Ferguson is the current manager at the club.

The club later added: "We will keep Sir Alex and his loved ones in our thoughts during this time, and we are united in our wish to see him make a comfortable, speedy recovery".

However, he did say everyone at the club was optimistic that the United great would recover.

However, they later became friends and with Wenger leaving Arsenal at the end of the season, Ferguson presented the his old adversary with a memento on his final visit to United's Old Trafford ground just last weekend. Mourinho signalled as much be prefacing his words on Wednesday afternoon at the club's Carrington-based training facility by acknowledging this.

Mourinho said: "He will start the last match".

'It's private. His family ask for privacy and that's what I'm going to respect'.

Unfortunately, it was not good news, as Doncaster had lost 1-0.

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?"

Marouane Fellaini will also be unavailable for the trip to the London Stadium with a muscular injury.

Lukaku is in a race to be fit for United's FA Cup final against Chelsea on Saturday week.

"He will start the last match, at Old Trafford, the last match of the Premier League, our captain in front of our fans, he will start the match against Watford", Mourinho said. Mourinho outlined why the midfielder, who joined in 2006, is to be part of his coaching staff.

You can take the man of football but you cannot take football out of the man.

"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".
