Nani gets the hairdryer blast.

MANCHESTER United winger Nani admits he is one of the more frequent victims of Sir Alex Ferguson's infamous hairdryer.

Now 70, Ferguson claims to have mellowed down the years, a stance the likes of Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville agree with.

However, the Scot's temper can quickly boil over if he feels his team are not reaching the performance levels he demands.

And Nani, on his day a world-class talent but infuriatingly inconsistent, knows he irritates his boss more than most.

Speaking to the Betfair Facebook page, Nani said: "I get it a lot, it's normal.

"He expects more from me, so sometimes he comes to me and says something."

Not that it means Nani respects Ferguson any less.

"No-one understands it like Alex Ferguson," he said.

"Everyone knows him in Portugal, and talk a lot talk about him."
