Berbatov Update (#35)
Displaying his stuff down in Durban yesterday evening, Dimitar Berbatov showed his skills by providing the perfect through ball for Macheda to score United`s winner.
But, following his Facebook outburst, his future looks as cloudy as ever although listening to Sir Alex Ferguson discussing his player after the conclusion of the fixture last night, it`s clear that Dimitar does have some kind of future at Old Trafford, with the boss remarking,
"I don`t need to hail the ability of Dimitar. He is a fantastic player."
"Last season he didn`t play the amount of football he wanted. So it`s difficult for him at his age to accept being behind the other forwards."
"He has a future, there`s no question about that and I`m quite easy about it. If he stays I`m happy, but if someone comes and wants him then we`ll have to assess that."
Clearly the crux of the problem is that Dimitar, at thirty-one years of age, doesn`t want to be a bit-pat player and wants to see a lot more of the action than he did last season!
