Glazer recuperating after stroke

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 the 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."

Malcolm Glazer, who is also the owner/president of NFL team Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has yet to attend a United game in person.

He has delegated responsibility to liaising with the Premiership club to sons Joel, Avi and Bryan, who are all on the United board.

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

Since the takeover, he has increased his shareholding to 98%.

Glazer's health scare will come as a shock to fans of both United and the Buccaneers.

At no stage over the past week has there been any indication he was ill.
