Man Utd legend Beckham: My relationship with Sir Alex? Well,...

Manchester United legend David Beckham says he and Sir Alex Ferguson have ended their rift.

The pair fell out in the final weeks of Beckham's career at United, but were together again last week for Chelsea's Champions League clash at PSG.

"We get on. It was made worse than it actually was. He was a father figure for me for so many years," said Beckham in an interview to appear on Friday's Graham Norton Show.

"He brought me to the club that I loved as a kid and I was successful at the club, so he gave me everything in my career.

"He will always be a man that I look up to because he gave me the dream of playing for Man United.

"The was no olive branch. We just bumped into each other at certain occasions after I left Manchester United.

"We never discussed the falling out. There were things that upset me and there were definitely things that upset him about me, but I have so much respect for him as a manager and as a man and he gave me my dream."
