Dimitar Berbatov lifted the lid on how exactly Sir Alex Ferguson got the best of his Manchester United stars, with several players getting a “special bet” on training.

Ferguson has worked with some of the world’s best football players for 26 years at Old Trafford, with which he has won an incredible 38 trophies.

The Scot was admired for his ability to manage people as he sought to get the best out of every player he worked with.

Former Berbatov striker now says such as Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville and Cristiano Ronaldo on training received special treatment.

“Hierarchy in football, it is always with the players,” said Berbatov Mirror.

“It doesn’t matter if someone tells you. If you are the star of a football team and deserve to be, of course, from time to time you will be treated with special care by the manager.

“I remember Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville when we trained, they trained a little differently so they could save themselves for the games, and there’s nothing wrong with that. This is normal in football.

“If you’re a great footballer, sometimes a manager will pay you more attention. As long as you help the team win the game, it’s okay in football.

– Sir Alex was very good at talking to each other, so you did not feel overwhelmed. Even if you didn’t play, he would know how to talk to you.

“It was the same with Cristiano Ronaldo, and in the end we saw the results.”

Berbatov’s comments came weeks after Ralph Rangnik was forced to deny that there were any problems of disharmony in the dressing room.

Reports began to appear that some players were not impressed with his training methods, but since then several team members have embraced these assumptions.
