The Sun: Man United will pay Fergie's BBC fine
Manchester United will pay £60,000 in fines for manager Alex Ferguson as he carries on his ban of speaking to the BBC, the Sun reports today.
New Premier League rules say all club managers must talk to the BBC after games or will be fined, with the scale of punishments increasing for repeat offenders.
The Sun says the first fine is £1,000 but this rises each time with the cost hitting around £60,000 for the full season.
Ferguson has not spoken to the BBC since it broadcast a 2004 documentary about his son Jason's work as an agent.
