Fergie Doesn't Like The Hairdryer!

Fergie Doesn't Like The Hairdryer!

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he does not enjoy getting down hard on his players.

I think there's not a single soul who reads this article and does not know why is it news that Fergie is talking about the hairdryer treatment. He's well known for his terrifying teamtalks and fierce competitiveness. However, he would rather it was a calmer job.

'I don't enjoy it if the team isn't playing well,' he said 'I'd rather not be in that position. It's much better to come in at half-time and everything has gone according to plan.

That is, of course, understandable. But that does not mean he doesn't enjoy lambasting his players even though he's tortured by the performance. We'll never know.

However, he went on to reveal some of his opinions on football management, points he rarely made before in public.

'Here, of course, more often than not it does, simply because of the players we
have. But that brings its own challenges.

'That's when you need to talk about concentration and the necessity of not
taking our foot off the pedal or the importance of going for that killer goal.

'So there are two types of team talk - one if you're doing well and another if
you're not.

'The observations on the first-half are the most important thing. You only have
about seven or eight minutes to rectify or resolve the situation if the match isn't
going to plan.

'You should never dodge any issues. I don't know what team talks are like in
other dressing-rooms but I try to get to the nub of the problem and solve it as
quickly as I can.

'After that, you have to motivate your players to start the second half.

'As manager you have to produce the right words and the right volume to make
players very aware of their - responsibilities and how they can improve.'
