Dimitar Ivanov Berbatov – A “Class Act”

Posted by unitedfanatic on October 2, 2009

berbatov“Manchester United have completed the signing Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham Hotspur, despite the London club having earlier accepted a shock bid from Manchester City. United striker Fraizer Campbell has moved in the opposite direction on a season-long loan.” – The Guardian on 2nd September, 2008

“Dimitar Berbatov completed his £30.75million move to Manchester United last night – moments before the midnight transfer deadline. Berbatov got his dream switch to United on a dramatic day which saw their local rivals Manchester City involved in a £200million takeover then launch an audacious bid to hijack their bid for Berbatov.” – The Mirror on September 2nd, 2008.

“Manchester United have completed the signing of Dimitar Berbatov for £30.75 million, with Fraizer Campbell going the other way on a season-long loan. The Bulgarian has been a long-term target of the double-winners, who had an approach rebuffed last season. They reignited their interest this summer, as they looked to complete their striking options up front.” – Goal.com on September 1st, 2008

Berbatov: Rooney offers more than ronaldo

Posted by unitedfanatic on September 6, 2009

With Dimitar Berbatov speaking highly about rooney as the season started, it comes as no surprise that he, yet again, claims Rooney adds more to the game than ronaldo did, in an interview with News of the World.


“Wayne is the biggest talent in the Premier League. We have lost a great player in Ronaldo, but even when he was at the club Wayne was still the biggest natural talent for me. He has much more to his game than Ronaldo. I wish Cristiano well, but he is our past now and Manchester United can become bigger and better without him.”

Berbatov has vowed to “sweat blood” for Manchester United this season. After conquering the pressures of a debut season following a big money transfer to United, Berbatov has impressed with his languid style of play, though sections of United fans might argue otherwise, pointing to his lack of goals and “lazy” attitude. Accepting the pressure on his shoulders, Berbatov reaffirmed his commitment to the cause and said:

“I am aware I came with a big price tag and I am ready to prove this season just what I can do. We have a chance to make it four titles in a row and that means making history if we succeed. I would not say my playing style is laid back, it is just a different style. I like time on the ball and I like space. If I can get that, then I know I can free up players like Nani and Wayne Rooney who do lots of running.”, said Berbatov. He added, “I am ready to sweat blood for this club. I want to create and score goals and I know I can be part of a trophy-winning team this season.”

With his 2 assists and a goal coming off the penalty spot, he will be high on morale and the praise for his strike partner at United will only add to their chemistry on the pitch ahead of the crucial away encounter against his former club. Lets hope the two of them prove too hot to handle for the hotspurs.
