The 76-year-old former United manager is to continue his rehabilitation in hospital in Salford.

"His family have been overwhelmed by the level of support and good wishes but continue to request privacy as this will be vital during this next stage of recovery.

"His family asked for privacy and that is what I am going to respect," Mourinho said.
