Dempsey, who is a well-respected member of United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s staff, reportedly fell ill and was driven to hospital and escorted with a sheet covering his head.

Dempsey’s wife, Susan, told The Sun her husband collapsed due to dehydration and lack of sleep following the intensity of training and time difference.

She said: “So everything is fine. I’ve just spoken to him now.

“He’s still in hospital but maybe he’ll be released in the morning. They’re keeping him in for observation. He’s on a drip because he’s dehydrated.”

Dempsey, who made one league appearance for the Red Devils between 1982 and 1986, has worked with Solskjaer at Molde and Cardiff in the past.

After Solskjaer succeeded Jose Mourinho in the United hotseat in December, Dempsey was appointed to his coaching staff at Old Trafford.

The 55-year-old featured for Swindon, Sheffield United, Chesterfield, Rotherham and Macclesfield during his playing days.

He has managed Scandinavian clubs and is a trusted member of Solskjaer’s backroom team.

United take on Perth Glory in their pre-season opener on Saturday.
