Ferguson ends BBC feud after 7 years

Sir Alex Ferguson has put an end to his long-running feud with the BBC.

Ferguson began his boycott in 2004 after it made allegations against his son, Jason, in a TV documentary entitled "Fergie & Son".

A statement said: "Sir Alex and the BBC have put behind them the difficulties which led to Sir Alex feeling unable to appear on BBC programmes."

The joint statement, released on Thursday, follows a meeting between Sir Alex and the BBC's director general, Mark Thompson, and BBC North director Peter Salmon.

It added: "The issues have been resolved to the satisfaction of both parties. 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."

The lines of communication are expected to open when Manchester United host Arsenal on Sunday.
