And speaking to the Baggies' official website, opened up on his interactions with Ferguson and how the legendary Old Trafford boss would deal with youngsters coming through.

"He was massively involved but more so when we got to about 13," said Johnstone.

"Our training would be in a few different locations but when you get to 14 you’re at Carrington all the time.

"Sometimes we’d be playing games and the first-team and him would come and watch after training, we used to be so star-struck."

On his encounters with Ferguson himself, Johnstone admitted he couldn't help but respect him and revealed how the Scot wanted to deal with just the players themselves and not their agents.

Johnstone added: "He used to do all the contracts, so I remember going in for my first one after my scholarship ended at 18, 19 [years old] and he wouldn’t have anything to do with agents.

"My agent had rung up and Sir Alex had got wind of it, I was running over for training and he collared me in front of everyone. He told me I was old enough to vote so I was old enough to make my own decision on the contract. Luckily I trained well that day, so when I went to see him on my own he was fine. I think he was right."

Johnstone added that he only had good memories of dealing with Ferguson. The West Brom man also worked under David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho at United.

He added: "Sir Alex is a nice guy and he has this aura about him which made you respect him right away. "
