Ferguson 2/1 to turn the air blue in first BBC broadcast

| 25.08.2011

Sir Alex Ferguson is 10/1 to boycott the BBC this weekend according to Ladbrokes.

It’s just 5/1 he snubs the Beeb again this season and 8/1 he appears on MOTD as a pundit. The bookies quote odds of just 2/1 that he swears live on air at any time this term.

His racehorse ownership is another avenue for chatting to the channel and Ladbrokes quote him as a 5/1 chance to be interviewed live after a horse he owns (or part owns) wins a race broadcast on the BBC.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “It looks like Ferguson has patched things up with the Beeb for food. His passion for racing means they could collide on course as well.”
