United - Berbatov on His Magical Day!

United - Berbatov on His Magical Day!

Dimitar Berbatov lit up Old Trafford with his performance yesterday becoming the first United player to hit a hat-trick against Liverpool since 1946.

On that occasion it was a certain Stan Pearson who received the accolades.

After the match, our Bulgarian striker was much sought after by the media and spoke about the day itself and his own performance,

"It felt like a magical day, very special for me because I scored a hat-trick and we beat our rivals."

"Everyone is very happy in the dressing room."

"I will be going home with a smile on my face but to my kids I am nothing special - tomorrow is another day and Sunday is another game."

"It was probably my best performance for United but I don`t want it to be the last."

"Hopefully, every game I will improve and everything will happen for me like it did today."

"It went through y mind that we had lost a two-goal lead the week before but, thankfully, we showed a fighting spirit."

"In future when we go 2-0 up we should look to go 3-0. But we will keep on improving. There is a long way to go and hopefully, we will end up top."

And as for his wonder-goal, surely already a contender for the goal of the season, Dimitar was surprisingly modest, remarking,

"I did not see the ball go in but when I heard the crowd screaming it was easy to guess what had happened."

"It was a good goal. But the ball was in the net and it does not matter whether it was an overhead kick of a tap-in."

Our view is that he should milk the accolades as goals like that don`t come along that often.

After a dismal start he is really showing why Fergie is right about not needing Tevez. Ability wise Berbatov is undoubtedly better than Tevez he has just had to adjust his game to match our game and look at results so far.

No.7 - Ability wise? Tevez is faster, closes players down, can tackle and has a better attitude. Are they not abilities?

bluedub thats not ability thats called running around like a headless chicken.the best thing tevez has done since he left man utd was to get his haircut,at least he know looks more like a foootballer instead of worzel gummidge

Ok JH, I'm sure you were saying the same when he was getting your lot out of jail, with late goals on numerous occasions.

Tevez's work rate is great yes but his attitude itself stinks. He rates himself first and foremost and can't accept squad rotation. In comparison Berbatov is a better finsher when on form, agile, amazing first touch, good short pass, work rate has improved, acrobatical (if thats a word), more of an aerial threat and posses great vision and unselfish.

Oh yeah, the same Berbatov you were all ready to show the door just a few months ago has suddenly become a world beater on the back of a couple of decent games. But nobody ever slated him, or called for him to be sold, no, never.
