Man Utd boss Ferguson will maintain personal ban on BBC

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will not consider ending his feud with the BBC.

The Sun says a motion was passed last week that managers must speak to the host broadcasters after matches next season.

But Fergie - who previously only had to send a member of the coaching staff to talk to the Beeb - is not prepared to back down and will risk fines to make his stand.

He has not spoken to the BBC - who pay for Match of the Day highlights and live radio commentary - since 2004 following a controversial documentary about son Jason's dealings as a football agent.

At the time, the United boss referred to the broadcaster as 'arrogant beyond belief' and has been at war with them since.
