JUAN SEBASTIAN VERON has risked the wrath of Sir Alex Ferguson by revealing he had to duck to avoid a flying bottle hurled by the fiery Scot during a typical dressing room dressing down.

Ferguson insists what happens in the changing room is "sacrosanct", and would never reveal secrets to the media.

Jaap Stam paid the price for admitting the Old Trafford boss told his players to dive in European competitions in order to win penalties, and, despite maintaining a dignified silence over the matter, David Beckham was also sold after doing little to avoid the media frenzy that followed the famous 'boot' incident following the defeat to Arsenal last season.

Veron, who is wanted by Internazionale, could follow out of the exit door if Ferguson adopts a similar stance to his revelations.

"Bottles are thrown in the dressing room," he stated.

"One time, I had to dodge one which flew very close to my head.

"Ferguson doesn't do it intentionally. He's not looking to hit anyone in particular, but he throws them.

"Sometimes, he's more withdrawn, then he gets close to you to speak to you and, when he has to throw a bottle, he does.

"He loses his cool.

"But I don't mind," he told The Mirror. "He corrects things and it doesn't bother me at all."

Meanwhile, Eric Cantona has revealed he would love to manage United one day, sparking speculation he could be in the frame to become Ferguson's new assistant.

"This (his coaching of a club) will be a team such as Manchester, I promise," he revealed.

"I have a certain idea on the game and I will not accept becoming coach if I cannot bring my vision, and the feeling that the game can evolve.

"Automatically, this will be revolutionary.

"To do it, I need big players. And the biggest players, they are located at a club like Manchester."

However, Ferguson may not deem the talismanic Frenchman as suitable for his right-hand man, at this moment in time.
