Football: Sir Alex Ferguson out of intensive care as he continues recovery from brain surgery

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho said on Wednesday he was "very positive" the club's former manager Alex Ferguson would return to full health after suffering a brain hemorrhage.

A Manchester United spokesperson said: "Sir Alex no longer needs intensive care and will continue rehabilitation as an inpatient".

The family continue to request "vital" privacy as Ferguson enters the next stage of his recovery.

The 36-year-old midfielder has won five Premier League titles, the Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup, three League Cup trophies and the Club World Cup since joining United from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006.

Ferguson, who is widely cited to be one of the greatest managers of all time in football due to his extraordinary with United, was reported to have collapsed at his home on Saturday and was taken to the Macclesfield district hospital at around 9 AM local time.

Lukaku, United's top scorer with 27 goals this season, suffered a foot injury in a league win over Arsenal last month.

However, they later became friends and Ferguson presented Wenger with a momento on his final visit to United's Old Trafford ground as Arsenal manager just last weekend.

Robbie Fowler, who proved to be a constant thorn in Ferguson's side when Liverpool played the Red Devils, gave his thumbs up to the news. During nearly 27 years as manager of United, Ferguson won 38 titles at United. He is the most successful manager in the history of British football.

He said the team has a positive relationship with Ferguson, and wouldn't be negatively effected by his health worries.
