Nani feels Fergie heat

2012-01-20 07:34

Portugal winger Nani admitted yesterday that he tends to be a prime target for Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s infamous temper outbursts.

“I get it a lot, it’s normal,” said Nani of Ferguson’s notorious “hairdryer” treatment.

“He expects more from me, so sometimes he comes to me and says something.”

But Nani told the Betfair Facebook page that he has nothing but respect for 70-year-old Ferguson.

“No-one understands it like Alex Ferguson. Everyone knows him in Portugal, and talks a lot talk about him.

Everyone knows the way he works is fantastic and the young lads improve a lot.”
