Glazer is back in hospital after his second stroke within a month.

LONDON, England -- Manchester United owner Malcolm Glazer, 77, is recovering after suffering a second stroke.

"The condition is understood not to be life-threatening," said a spokesman for the Glazer family.

The American suffered a first stroke in mid-April and was re-admitted to Cleveland Clinic hospital on April 30 after a second stroke. His speech and mobility continue to be impaired.

"Doctors expect my father to return home in the next few weeks," said Joel Glazer, one of his sons.

"As a result of this stroke his rehabilitation period will be longer and more challenging. Our family appreciates all the support and warm wishes that we have received." he added.

The U.S.-based Glazer family secured a $1.49 billion buy-out of Premier League club United just over a year ago.
