After the news surfaced, Dempsey & # 39; s wife – at home in Lancashire – told The Sun that she had talked to her husband.
She said: & # 39; So everything is going well. I just spoke with him.
& # 39; He's still in the hospital, but maybe he & # 39; released in the morning. They keep him for observation. He is on the drip because he has dried out. & # 39;
Dempsey was in the books of United as a player between 1982 and 1986. He was recently active in Scandinavia before returning to Old Trafford as part of the Solskjaer back room team.
