West Ham United manager Glenn Roeder has been moved out of intensive care following his recent collapse.
Roeder is on the path to recovery
The 47-year-old will still require neuro-surgery but is expected to return to work within the next two months.
Scans revealed Roeder - who was rushed to hospital after West Ham's 1-0 win over Middlesbrough on 21 April - had a blocked blood vessel in his brain.
But the Hammers announced on Tuesday that the manager was making good progress at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel.
A club statement read: "Tests have revealed a small lesion in the brain that will require neuro-surgery in the near future.
"A full recovery and a return to work is expected within the next six to eight weeks.
"Glenn's wife Faith would like to thank all those who have sent messages of best wishes and support, especially those from
many hundreds of Hammers fans.
"Faith has also requested that the family's privacy continues to be respected at this time."
West Ham director and former player Trevor Brooking has taken charge of first-team affairs for the remainder of the season.
