Sir Alex Ferguson once jokingly urged his Manchester United title winners to listen to the Liverpool manager going "ballistic" after they pipped their fierce rivals to the Premier League crown.
Former Red Devil Ronny Johnsen has given a hilarious take on Ferguson's managerial style, the former Norway international having enjoyed a six-year spell at Old Trafford after arriving in 1996.
The versatile Johnsen capped off his debut season with a memorable title triumph, in which United wrapped up the 1996-97 league crown with a 3-1 title-deciding win at Anfield.
And Johnsen, who was speaking to the UTD podcast , has revealed how Ferguson reacted in the away dressing room.
“We came into the changing room and the gaffer came in a little bit late,” Johnsen said.
“We were buzzing and he said: ‘Quiet, quiet!’ The changing rooms in that stadium are very close to each other and you can hear their manager go ballistic and [Ferguson] is like: ‘Listen, you can hear them!’
“I loved it!”
Indeed it was a remarkable finale to a season which began with a tough opening game of the season against Wimbledon.
And Johnsen looks back on his maiden Premier League spell with fond memories.
