"[The club] are positive, they are very positive".

"How did Doncaster get on?' he is said to have asked before discussing the crucial showpiece matches both United and Liverpool face this month".

It was reported that the former coach was hospitalized due to a brain hemorrhage.

Fergie was rushed to hospital after suffering from a brain haemorrhage and he underwent emergency surgery and is now believed to be showing early signs of recovery.

United have offered no update on Ferguson's condition since saying a procedure on the haemorrhage on Saturday had gone "very well", but that a period of intensive care is needed to optimise his recovery. His family request privacy in this matter.

Since, then the club have remained silent and following Mourinho's comments are expected to continue to do so until any further notice from the Ferguson family.

"It's private", said Mourinho. "I went to see him in the box after the game and he looked in ideal shape", Wenger said after his final home game as Arsenal boss on Sunday.

Mourinho and his squad, meanwhile, were pictured boarding a private jet on Wednesday afternoon ahead of Thursday night's Premier League clash with West Ham.

'I can only think that if there is any relation it is a positive relation, ' said Mourinho. Unfortunately, Doncaster lost 1-0.

The club's stars said they were "overwhelmed" by the legend's plight.

Marouane Fellaini will also be unavailable for the trip to the London Stadium with a muscular injury.

'Aye, the Cup Final is out - but what about Kiev?'

Mourinho added: "Our captain will start the match against Watford, in front of our fans". Lukaku will not play in the last league game of the season.

Former United striker Mark Hughes, speaking after his Southampton side's draw with Everton, said: "I wish him all the best". "And not just football, society is not full of them. He means a lot to me, as he does to this club". Arsenal was unable to refuse an offer for the Dutchman as he risked losing him for free, with Wenger admitting the club were not in a financially strong enough position to keep their top players.
