“What a great captain. On the training ground one day, I get the ball, he tackled me and he also got my leg. I was on the floor, it was painful. I said, ‘Gary – you don’t say sorry?’ And he gave me the ‘F’ word.

“The next ball, it was long diagonal, he controlled the ball with his chest, and I just did a wrestling movement. I tackled him on his throat and he nearly did a backflip and broke his neck.

“Ferguson stopped the training session. Everyone was in. Wayne Rooney said, ‘You’re crazy! He could’ve died the way he fell’.

“I said, ‘Next time, he will say sorry!’
