Manchester United legend, Ryan Giggs has named the four Manchester United players who never faced the hairdryer treatment from Sir Alex Ferguson.
Giggs recently came out to say that the legendary manager was undoubtedly a master of psychology while he was coach.
According to the current Wales manager, the players were Eric Cantona, Bryan Robson, Roy Keane and Cristiano Ronaldo and the only reason why they were always exempted was because they did amazing things on the pitch.
Giggs added that he fell out with Fergie several times over the hairdryer treatment but later realized that he was doing it to get the best out of his players.
His words, “There were three or four players that he never had a go at,”
“Eric Cantona was one – Bryan Robson, Roy Keane and Cristiano Ronaldo. They were all in their own ways matchwinners.
“They did the stuff on the pitch, so he never felt he had to.
“Eric, there were some games where Eric didn’t do anything. He didn’t score, he wasn’t running around like a Carlos Tevez or a Wayne Rooney, he didn’t have any impact. But he knew sooner or later he would come good.
“We would be sat in the dressing room thinking: ‘He’s got to have a go at him, he’s got to have a pop at him because he didn’t do anything today.’
“But the next week he’d scored the winner or he would produce a moment of magic, so he handled the big names really well as long as they were doing it on the pitch, he handled them in a different way.
“He was the master of psychology, he was a master at getting the best out of certain individuals like whether to put an arm around, or whether to give them a rocket at half-time or at the end of the game or leave them out knowing that the player would react in a positive way.”
“I fell out with him plenty of times,”
“I mean the amount of times I would say over my career, six or seven times where it was a couple of weeks wages I was fined for talking back, for having an argument.
“At the time it’s not very nice, you’re in the dressing room, you’ve just got beat or you’ve had a bad performance. And I just couldn’t help myself to have a go back.
“He actually, later in his career, he told me he liked that, it meant that you cared. He’d still fine you two weeks because he wanted to show that he was in charge but he actually quite liked it, as long as it didn’t cross the line of course.”
