Sir Alex Ferguson and the BBC have ended their 7 year row.
Ferguson hasn’t spoken to the corporation following a documentary criticising his son Jason.
The BBC Three documentary, which aired in May 2004, investigated the business relationship between the club and Sir Alex Ferguson’s football agent son, Jason – focusing on two transfer deals.

Sir Alex will now make himself available to the BBC for Match of the Day, Radio 5 Live and other outlets.
