Sir Alex Ferguson has been fined £8,500 for refusing to speak to the media after Manchester United Vs. Real Madrid Champions League defeat. Wait a minute! People get fined for refusing to speak to the media?
Fergie felt the red card was unjustly meted out and was furious throughout the match, even his assistant Mike Phelan, Ferguson stated that he was too distraught to fulfil his media commitments after their loss to Madrid. But UEFA insists he was wrong.
