'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Giggs And Neville Suffer Most From Fergie!

Nani, according to the press, has lifted the lid on Ferguson's characted in his 'explosive' interview. Well, here's what he had to say - you have to decide if it's news for you.

'Ferguson is a very complicated man,' Nani said. 'He's tough. If things are all right, then they are all right. But when he thinks something is wrong, everything is screwed.

'He can go from complimenting you to just plain trashing you in a matter of minutes. Has it happened to me? Hell, yes! He'll say 'Nani, how could you miss this or this'?

'He shouts at players in front of everyone. No one escapes, everybody is the same. Giggs and Neville suffer most, because they have more experience. It is 'F**k' here and 'F**k' there.'


Fergie, shouting in the dressing room? Never! Who would have thought that? It is certainly a bombshell! In his autobiography, Fergie admits that when he was younger a bad pass could make him rage at the offender when his team was holding a three-goal lead. Though he mellowed over the years it seems that some characteristics will never go away!

What is interesting here is that the two most experienced and authoritative figures of the dressing room, Ryan Giggs and Gary Nevile do not get any leeway; indeed, if we believe Nani, they get even more stick than the others. Is that the way to maintain their admirable professionalism? Obviously did no great harm to either so Nani should not be discouraged...

You get the impression that managers abroad are all mushy with their players which explains the over theatrical nature of some of their players. i.e one of the originals Pires!

It's a different culture on the continent, that's for sure. Liverpool and Arsenal players mentioned several times that Wenger and Benitez were unlikely to lose their rag in the dressing room; no danger of a flying boot there.
