Manchester United boss calls it quits on BBC silence

Sir Alex Ferguson has finally decided to end his seven-year long boycott of talking to the BBC.

The Manchester United manager started his interview ban after BBC television show, Panorama, made accusations that Ferguson’s son, Jason, was exploiting his father’s managerial position for financial benefits as well as advantages in transfers.

The BBC released a statement reading: “Sir Alex and the BBC have put behind them the difficulties which led to Sir Alex feeling unable to appear on BBC programmes.”

The statement goes on to say: “Sir Alex will now make himself available to the BBC for Match of the Day, Radio 5 live and other outlets as agreed. No further comment will be made by either party on this issue.”

Ferguson will see his return to a BBC post-match interview on Sunday, where Manchester United meet Arsenal.
