Berbatov: The Assist Was Better Than The Goal
Dimitar Berbatov was praised by Sir Alex Ferguson after the Fulham game: according to the boss, Berbatov has been an unsung hero of our season, providing assists and scoring goals as well, reaching double figures for the league campaign.
Berbatov scored and assisted against Fulham and he was in good spirits after the game.
'I'm pleased,' he told MUTV.
'It's part of my job, to assist and to score, but if we win it doesn't matter if I score, as long as we are champions in the end. I preferred the second goal I gave to Wayne today than scoring.'
And it was a magnificent assist, underlining Berbatov's massive quality. If only he could produce these more regularly... But right now he's a perfect understudy for Rooney though I must admit that it does not seem to make much of a difference to Rooney's performances if Berbatov isn't there to help him.
But I firmly believe that Berba will be a very important contributor to the final weeks of the season. He will play a big part in the title push, that's for sure.
