RYAN GIGGS had admitted he laid into Cristiano Ronaldo for drinking Coke at breakfast.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer previously claimed angry Giggs pinned a young Ronaldo up against the wall over the incident.
When asked if the now Juventus star’s conduct was not acceptable, the Wales manager replied: “Maybe. I don't know if I pinned him.
"I might have told him, ‘We don’t do this’ and then he went and scored a hat-trick! 'I drink what I want, Giggsy!'”
The incident gave an insight into the standards under Sir Alex Ferguson at United and how Giggs played until he was 40.
Giggs made a club-record 963 appearances for the Red Devils but he has revealed the sacrifices made along the way to extend his longevity.
He told the Utd Podcast: “I love chocolate and loads of butter on my toast. When I wasn’t playing well or felt a bit sluggish I cut them out completely.
“If I was playing well and having loads of butter I’d carry on. It wasn’t physical, it was mental. It was punishing yourself.
“I had Dairy Milk in the cupboard until I scored.”
