Asked by Duran Duran lead singer Simon Le Bon about handling the public attention, Ferguson told manutd.com: "I think it's part of the job when you're manager of Manchester United. It's not just me, either. Look at the criticism Ronaldo gets, the best player in the world. He only has to have half a bad game and he's slaughtered.
"Cantona got it, he got slaughtered for ages. You see the criticism that Gary Neville gets because he's a dyed-in-the-wool Manchester United man. You have to accept it's part of the package. It doesn't bother me one bit."
