MUTV snubbed by football manager Sir Alex Ferguson

4th March 2011 - Alma Shera

Manchester United football manager Sir Alex Ferguson has taken his media ban to a whole new level, after refusing to speak to his own club's television station.

Football manager Ferguson has been charged with improper conduct by the FA, after MUTV aired an interview in which the Scot questioned the fairness of referee Martin Atkinson, who officiated the recent game against Chelsea.

With a two-game touchline ban already hanging over his head from a similar indiscretion last season, Sir Alex could be forced to miss more soccer games.

However, rather than being more mindful of what he says in future, he has instead decided to hold a grudge against MUTV for broadcasting the interview he gave them.

As such, the channel will not be allowed any time with the football manager in the build-up to one of the club's most important fixtures - a trip to Anfield to play Liverpool on Sunday (March 6th).

Ferguson has refused to speak to the BBC for years, after the broadcaster aired a Panorama investigation into his son's activities as a football agent.
