Former Manchester United player reveals how Ferguson use to intimidate referees

Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has revealed how Sir Alex Ferguson use to intimidate referees and players of opposition clubs.

Neville who played for Ferguson for two decades narrated on Quickly Kevin, Will He Score? podcast, he said: “He always used to stand in the tunnel before every single game, outside the dressing room, and shake every single one of our players’ hands.

“But I didn’t realise until I was captain that what he was doing, he was looking down the tunnel so the opposition players saw him and the referee saw him.

“It’s a bit of intimidation. He was an overpowering figure. This idea of winning in the tunnel before you’ve even gone out on the pitch, there was an element of that with him in terms of the psychology.”
