One of the greatest managers and characters to ever grace this sport, Ferguson only retired from management five years ago and has remained a regular at Old Trafford and always seemed in good health for a man of his age.

However, the 76-year-old had to be rushed to hospital in the last few days, with the whole footballing community coming together to wish him all the best in his recovery.

The Mail now suggests things are looking positive and this unsurprisingly has United fans and others celebrating the news on Twitter, showing just how much this legendary manager means to everyone.
