"I'll be honest, when you start winning the third one, the fourth and the fifth, you celebrate but not the same way," said the former France international left-back.
"You celebrate because of the cameras and stuff, but it's not the same. Ferguson taught us all to be like a robot. I don't think I was a human being playing for Manchester United. When we won games, when I was doing something good, I wasn't pleased. For me, it was something normal.
"I always say that (Didier) Deschamps taught me winning is important, but Ferguson taught me that winning is normal. I remember after big wins against Liverpool, he just said, 'Well done, son'. He was never screaming, apart from when we won the Champions League final," Evra said on a UTD podcast.
Evra recalls the 2008 Champions League final where United defeated their Premier League rivals Chelsea on penalties, the defender explained Ferguson's unique psychology after the victory.
"Ferguson took the microphone and he said, 'Well done guys, I'm really proud of you. We won the league and the Champions League, but next year if someone doesn't want to win again, I will cut his contract. Enjoy your summer with your national team and I don't wish you good luck'.
"I remember I came home, I dropped my bag and was thinking 'this is the feeling to win the Champions League?' But actually, winning was normal and you shouldn't be excited about that."
