Giggs: Ferguson still loses it with me

Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs admits that Sir Alex Ferguson still has the capability to lose his temper in the dressing room and revealed that even his veteran status and twenty year working relationship doesn’t exempt him from famous hair-dryer treatment.

Throughout his time at Old Trafford, the Scottish tactician is understood to have subjected both his squad and under-performing individuals to brutal treatment in the aftermath of matches when results have not gone the way of the Red Devils.

Speaking to Sky Sports Magazine, Giggs gave an insight into life under his long-term mentor:

“Players are more fragile now, so the manager has had to adapt. The hair dryer doesn’t come out as much, but his man management is brilliant.

“He knows when to have a go or when to look after you, and he knows how to deal with most situations. He has seen everything,” continued the Welshman.

“I have still seen him go crazy loads of times in the last few years. He still loses it with me.

“That last time was after the Fulham game this season, because I didn’t take the penalty, Nani did, and missed it, so we ended up drawing. Oh, he can still give it!”
