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

Ron hails bosses tactics

PFA Player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that despite such an excellent season, there were still times when Sir Alex Ferguson shouted at him.

The Portuguese maestro revealed whilst talking to The Sun how Sir Alex was just as fiery today as he was when he first joined. 'People say he is less explosive than before but he can still get angry." Ronaldo went on to say how throughout a season full of glorious ups and downs, that Sir Alex managed to keep in control of the situation throughout. 'Everybody said he was past it, that the team could not win the Premiership, but, as he predicted, the team gained in maturity, consistency and balance. All the players scored this year and Ferguson knew that was going to happen. He has always been in control.'

The 23 year old went on to say how he looks up to Sir Alex as a father-figure and that his half-time team talks often became very animated. "He is like my mother or my father. He sets my limits and my aims. He has often shouted at me during half-time, but always to make progress. He is fair.'

I`m certainly not one to tell the great Sir Alex Ferguson what to do, but if shouting at him leads to performances like we saw last season, PLEASE CARRY ON !!!

He still tends to disappear in the biggest games so there's still a challenge for Sir Alex.

Zae- i think thats becasue in the big games he gets so heavily marked that he can't do alot. However, im sure with time he will be able to solve this.

Truly great players are always heavily marked in big games but they show their greatness by still giving quality performances. Rooney's got this priceless attribute and I also think Ronaldo will improve in this sense with time AND with Fergie's guidance.
