“Hi Danny, I just hear about your history, I hope you get well soon,”

said the Portugal international.

“I invite you to come to one of [our] games in Manchester, so get well soon my friend. Take care.”

, who has played alongside Hodgson at Carlisle United, also reached out to the injured player.

“Stay strong, stay in there, you’ll get through this, I promise,”

he said

. “I know how hard you are and you’ll be fine.

“I can’t wait to get you over to a [Manchester United] game and meet the boys. I’ve told them all about you and we’re all in your corner ... we just wish you all the very best.”

Hodgson is staying in ICU in a stable condition, while ECU Joondalup is organizing a fundraiser for his hospital expenses. Premier League champions Manchester City also sent their message of support to Hodgson earlier today.
