I was one of only TWO Man Utd players not to get Sir Alex Ferguson hairdryer treatment… but don't EVER call him Fergie | The Sun

ASHLEY YOUNG has revealed that he was one of two players never to get the 'hairdryer treatment' by Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Aston Villa winger was at Manchester United before Ferguson's reign came to an end in 2013.

The Scottish boss was known for his infamous 'hairdryer treatment', which would be handed out to his players.

The most famous example of the treatment was when David Beckham was left with a cut above his eye after a football boot had been kicked at him.

However, Young insisted that he managed to escape it along with midfielder Darren Fletcher while he was at Old Trafford.

He told The Telegraph: "We have a WhatsApp group for the old [Manchester United] players and we think there were only two out of the era who didn’t get shouted at.

"I was one and the other was Darren Fletcher. I don’t know whether that is because he is Scottish."

Fletcher was a favourite of Ferguson during his time at the club, as he played most of his career at the Red Devils.

The 37-year-old also revealed that Ferguson would never be called 'Fergie' despite the nickname being popular among others.

He added: "You can’t say ‘Fergie’ either.

"That’s not allowed. He’s ‘The Boss’. Just to let you know!”

Young continued to admit that he was "given the most" by Ferguson in his career and that he is still in regular contact with the 81-year-old.

Young said: "I won’t say the best but the one who has given me the most is ‘The Boss’. Sir Alex.

"The one I still talk to most is ‘The Boss’. I had a conversation with him a few months ago and he was talking about the changes in football and how he would be in football nowadays.    

"I won’t go into the conversation … I don’t know if he’s impressed by certain changes.

"But the way ‘The Boss’ was for years, the success he had – he had his way of dealing with players, of dealing with the press, whatever else there was.

"How he had his team set up. How he knew his team – weeks, months, in advance.

"The way he was with players. I am not too sure how that would be seen these days."
