Sir Alex Ferguson is now up and talking with family members as he recovers from brain surgery.
The Sun says Ferguson's first words to his family after brain surgery were: “How did Doncaster get on?"
He was rushed to hospital hours before son Darren's Doncaster Rovers played host to Wigan in the final match of the season — and lost 1-0.
A source said: “Typical Sir Alex. He can't stop talking football."
Fergie, 76 stunned his family minutes after coming round from emergency surgery — by joking about flying to Kiev in two weeks time for the Champions League final.
But he told family at his hospital bedside: “Aye, the Cup Final is out — but what about Kiev?"
