Ryan Giggs has disclosed the four players that, when he was Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson did not hand out the hairdryer treatment.
During his amazing 26-year reign at Old Trafford, Fergie was infamous for criticizing some of his players.
Ryan Giggs has identified the four Manchester United players who were saved from Sir Alex Ferguson’s “hairdryer treatment,” describing the legendary Scottish manager as a “master of psychology.”
Ferguson is widely regarded as one of the greatest managers in football history, having led the United to 13 Premier League titles and two European Cups during his 26-year tenure at the Theater of Dreams.
However, he did not always see eye to eye with his teammates, with accounts of dressing room disputes before and after matchings over a common occurrence with other players. Ferguson confessed to throwing a boot on the chest of David Beckham, leaving the ex-England winger in need of stitches. Off-field disputes with Ruud van Nistelrooy and Jaap Stam eventually caused both players to leave the team.
Giggs claims only a small number, including five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo and former team captain Roy Keane, managed to survive Ferguson’s anger.”There were three or four stars he’d never had a go at. “the record performance maker from United told IN Sports.”They were: Eric Cantona, Bryan Robson, Roy Keane, and Cristiano Ronaldo.”
He was the master of psychology, he was a genius to get the best out of other people by throwing an arm around, or giving them a lift at half-time or the end of the game, or getting them out in the hope that the athlete would react positively.
At the end of Ferguson’s rage Giggs went on to admit that he had felt on several occasions and that he had reacted constructively.
