Manchester United have released some good news regarding the condition of their former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferguson, 76, retired in May 2013 after winning 38 trophies during a 26-year tenure.

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.

"Sir Alex no longer needs intensive care and will continue rehabilitation as an inpatient".

"As well as being uppermost in the thoughts of our own players, past and present, Sir Alex has been the subject of many warm and touching comments from other clubs, governing bodies and individuals in the attractive game".

Lukaku, United's top scorer with 27 goals this season, suffered a foot injury in a league win over Arsenal last month. "I am so happy for him and all the people that love him".

Wenger, the Arsenal manager who was Ferguson's great rival for years, said: "It's fantastic news".
