How Sir Alex Ferguson Got Inside Cristiano Ronaldo's Head On His Return To Old Trafford

Sir Alex Ferguson was known for many things during his illustrious 26 year reign at Manchester United, but his ability to psyche out the opposition was one of his greatest assets.

Ferguson often played mind games before, during and after a game, using his almost obsessive attention to detail to get one over players and managers.

Yup, even if that player was a certain Cristiano Ronaldo.
