Default Glazer recuperating after stroke

Malcolm Glazer
Glazer has yet to watch a Man Utd game in person
Manchester United owner Malcolm Glazer has been released from hospital after suffering a stroke on Easter Sunday.

The 78-year-old American, who bought the club for £790m last summer, was admitted to Florida's Cleveland Clinic on 16 April after suffering the attack.

Glazer is still suffering from impaired speech and a lack of mobility in his right arm and leg.

A statement released by his son, Joel, said: "Doctors expect his condition to improve with rehabilitation."

Glazer, who is also the owner and president of NFL team Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has yet to attend a United game in person.
He has delegated responsibility for liaising with the Premiership club to sons Joel, Avi and Bryan, who are all on the United board.

Glazer's health scare will come as a shock to fans of both United and the Buccaneers because at no stage over the past week has there been any indication he was ill.

"On behalf of the entire Glazer family, I want to thank everyone at the Cleveland Clinic for their outstanding care," added Joel Glazer on the United website.

United officials have been eager to play down the impact Glazer's illness has had on the day-to-day running of the Old Trafford outfit.

Glazer took control of United in May 2005 after a two-year battle, securing more than 70% of the club's shares.

He became a hate figure amongst a section of United fans who were bitterly opposed to the takeover, claiming it would saddle the club with huge debts.

Glazer has since increased his shareholding to 98%.
