“I remember sometimes when we do something bad or we lost some games he kick the chairs and he kick the boots, he kick everything, the waters, the drinks, and he’s so red and ‘f**k you, you should pass the ball you,” Ronaldo said.

The three-time Ballon D’Or winner was far from critical of feeling Ferguson’s wrath, claiming it had a positive impact over all.

“It was unbelievable but it was good – because we learn.”
