“No, no, definitely not. He is a fantastic footballer and he will be with us next year.”
They were the words of Sir Alex Ferguson after the Manchester United boss was asked if he was looking to sell Dimitar Berbatov, whom he spent over £30 million on nearly two years ago, this summer.
The United faithful, who look delighted with the news in the picture, have called Berbatov many things this season including “lazy, shit, waste of money, not fit to wear the shirt, clown, bad player, Berbasauras-rex etc;”.
Many criticised the Bulgarian last season but personally, I thought he was amazing. He scored 12 incredible goals in the season, I lost track of the amount of assists he provided and was an all-round menace to the opposition defences in the Premier League.
Berbatov is still only 29 so he is still very young and I for one believe his best years at Old Trafford are most definitely ahead of him.
