"Everyone thinks it was all this "hairdryer", but the boss enjoys a good time, really enjoys his racing and is good company when you're around him". But we are positive. This was because his son Darren Ferguson is the current manager at the club. His family request privacy in this matter.

When Sir Alex Ferguson woke up from an induced coma following emergency surgery on Saturday night, only one thing was on his mind.

Mourinho was holding a press conference ahead of Thursday's Premier League match at West Ham, when he was asked about the former United manager, who won 38 trophies during his Old Trafford tenure.

Wales manager Giggs, given his United debut by Ferguson in 1991, said he was praying for his former manager's recovery. We need a point to finish second, we need a point to say that only one team was better than us, we need a point to say that 18 teams were not as good as us. The result was a 1-0 defeat to the home side at the Keepmoat Stadium, but Darren was absent from the game because of this family emergency.

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?"

And after admitting to his family that United's FA Cup final with Chelsea would come too soon for him to attend, his focus switched to Liverpool's Champions League final.

Mourinho said Carrick's qualities were rare not only in football, but also in wider society. So when you find one of them, you have to value [them] and you have to keep [them] and in this case, it's not about me, it's about the club. "And not just football, society is not full of them".

"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 handsome game". "Of course he has qualities that we believe can make him a good coach".
