Man Utd thanks well-wishers over showing support for Ferguson

Manchester United defender Phil Jones has described Sir Alex Ferguson as "like a father" to him.

Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has been sitting up and talking to family and friends after undergoing emergency surgery according to reports.

However, doctors expressed cautious optimism and recognize that the healing process 76-year-old Ferguson will be long.

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick last night also paid a heartfelt tribute to his former Ferguson.

Giggs was just one of many youngsters that Ferguson nurtured from the United academy to stardom on the global stage.

"He helped everyone, he's a guy with heart and I know everyone who believes in God in praying for him now". "The prognosis is good and his closest friends in football are being kept abreast of any developments", a source told The Sun.

Sir Alex came out of his coma and was showing promising early signs of recovery on Monday - but there was concern outside Old Trafford regarding the whereabouts of a famous street sign bearing his name.

Jones was signed from Blackburn Rovers by Ferguson in 2011 and was part of the Scot's 13th Premier League title in his final season before he retired in 2013.

The legendary Manchester United boss had a street opened in his honour five years ago today.

But instead Moyes brought in his men, his staff, and along with the arrival of Ed Woodward to replace David Gill gave the club a form of shock therapy from which it is still struggling to emerge four years on.

'But I gather that the operation has been a success. They bought Saha; I remember a lot of the boys telling me when I'd go away with England, "I thought you were actually coming".

United's Juan Mata admitted news of Ferguson's condition had a "huge impact" on the current squad.

"God knows everything so I hope he can help him".

That request has been widely followed and it has been left to the men that played for and against him, as well as managers and football fans, to pay their own dues.

"I just have good memories of him, he was like a second dad and I was crying yesterday when I heard the news".
