SIR Alex Ferguson “dodged a bullet” after suffering a potentially life-threatening brain haemorrhage, a family source has revealed. The recovering former Man United manager, released from hospital six weeks ago, was told by medics he was “extremely lucky” to be alive. Only 56 per cent survive a month after a severe brain bleeds — while between 12 and 39 per cent achieve long-term independence, figures show. Yet sources say Sir Alex, 76, is confident of taking his seat in the Old Trafford directors’ box at the start of next season. In recent weeks, he has been resting at home in Wilmslow, Cheshire, and enjoying the World Cup. It is huge progress since May when the Scot was transferred to Salford Royal Hospital with the haemorrhage. He was put in an induced coma and spent four days in intensive care. Sir Alex, who led United to 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, four League Cups and two Champions League crowns in his 26 years as manager, was … [Read more...] about Ex Manchester Utd manager Sir Alex Ferguson is on the mend six weeks after brain haemorrhage
Patience is not football fans' forte in a transfer window and particularly when there is an early closure. It clanks shut for Premier League clubs to sign players in 28 days and some are still to make additions. The most active club, Arsenal, have recruited a list that can be described at best as professional. Jose Mourinho might try to avoid it but next week he will restart media duties on United's pre-season tour and the questions are mounting. What news - if any - is there on United's transfer activity? Why did you not sign Cristiano Ronaldo? Do you think Anthony Martial will stay? How many more players do you want? Mourinho might rather speak about Brexit. City have chosen to unveil their record signing on Thursday but Riyad Mahrez's parade could be overshadowed by Jorginho. You can tell the World Cup is nearing its finale. Mourinho would not have expected to regret his comments on Ronaldo a year ago. "I am not going to get my club to waste time on players who are mission … [Read more...] about Man Utd could pull off same transfer surprise as Sir Alex Ferguson
Jose Mourinho has taken the 'next step' at United by reshuffling his backroom team like Sir Alex Ferguson used to, according to this former assistant, Mike Phelan. Following the departure of long-time No.2. Rui Faria, Mourinho has decided to appoint three new first-team coaches - Michael Carrick, Kieran McKenna and Stefano Rapetti. Carrick had already spent time in the dugout towards the end of last season as he entered the final months of his playing career. McKenna, meanwhile, has made a name for himself with the club's academy after winning the Premier League northern title with an exciting brand of football. Rapetti is the only external appointment, which will be officially confirmed next week when the players return for pre-season training, having previously worked with Mourinho during Inter Milan's treble-winning season in 2010. It is one of the rare occasions Mourinho has welcomed so many voices into his inner circle at once and Phelan, who was one of seven assistants during … [Read more...] about Jose Mourinho has borrowed a tactic from Sir Alex Ferguson
If ever there was a giveaway as to the average age of your average keyboard warrior it was United's announcement they had signed Lee Grant. Because United had recruited a 35-year-old journeyman rather than Cristiano Ronaldo and it left some 'disgusted' while others fumed that Jose Mourinho was 'killing' the club. Their memories are either not very long or their research is lacking. Sir Alex Ferguson made leftfield goalkeeping additions on at least two occasions and one was credited with an instrumental role in a double-winning season. Without playing. The most exposure Tony Coton ever got was appearing on the United Review programme cover against Leeds United in April 1996. Coton, approaching his 35th birthday, had joined United from City in January for £500,000 following Kevin Pilkington's flat-footed performance in the New Year's Day capitulation at Tottenham. Pilkington's positioning for both of Chris Armstrong's second-half headers was questionable and five days later he … [Read more...] about Manchester United have repeated Sir Alex Ferguson’s transfer tactic
