Fergie: No more hairdryer treatment

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson insists the days of doling out his infamous "hairdryer treatment" to under-performing players are long gone.

The 70-year-old Scot, who believes he has another two or three years before retirement, said age and experience had mellowed him and he no longer went in for dressing room bust-ups.

Ferguson told Radio Five Live: "I don't have any confrontations really, not nowadays, although maybe when I was younger I would have. If a player answered me back I would head straight for them, this is where the hairdryer treatment comes in. I didn't allow a player to beat me in an argument."
