MOST COMMENTED

Former Manchester United coach Alex Ferguson gave wide-ranging interview to Charlie Rose of PBS last night, in which he spoke about his relationships with Wayne Rooney, David Beckham and the Glazer family, among other things.

Regarding Rooney, Ferguson claims it was common knowledge that the England striker had asked to leave at the end of last season, but he was quick to add that their relationship has since been repaired. "I think he'd shake my hand if he came in now,” Ferguson said of Rooney. "[He] has got his energy and his purpose back so maybe that was a turning point in a way."

On Beckham, Ferguson refused to criticize the decisions the former LA Galaxy midfielder made since leaving United in 2003. "How can I argue with [Beckham's] life, he is an icon for young people," the Scot said, although he added that Beckham "lost focus" when "he married the Spice" [Victoria Beckham].

Ferguson went on to praise the controversial Glazer family, which has owned Manchester United since 2005. "In my time, they did nothing but support me. I have no hesitation in supporting the way they have gone about things," he said.
