MANCHESTER United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has agreed to lift his boycott on talking to the BBC – but a petition has been launched calling for the BBC to boycott him back.
Ferguson began his boycott of the broadcaster in 2004 after it made allegations against his son, Jason, in a TV documentary – and this week they put their differences behind them.
But a campaign has been started to keep the Red Devils’ manager off the Beeb.
To date it has 98 signatures, although the target is 100,000.
Its organisers said:” We believe that Alex Ferguson’s long absence from post-match interviews has been a huge benefit to most football fans who do not enjoy his paranoid and self-serving rants.
“We call upon the BBC to boycott Alex Ferguson.”
