Dimitar Berbatov Could Stay
Sir Alex Ferguson has informed trigger happy marksman Dimitar Berbatov that he will be staying with Manchester United for at least one more campaign. Following a fine treble against Wigan Athletic on Boxing Day, the massive striker scored another two goals in the painful 3–2 defeat at home to Blackburn Rovers last Saturday.
Born and brought up in the city of Blagoevgrad, Dimitar Berbatov started his goal scoring career with local team Pirin before the lavishly gifted youth joined forces with CSKA Sofia in 1998. After a comparatively successful spell at Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen, the trigger happy marksman decided to join English Premier League Tottenham Hotspur at the beginning of the 2006-07 season. As things eventually turned out, the sought after goal machine was brought to Manchester United by Sir Alex Ferguson for an estimated transfer fee of £30.75 million partly into the 2008-09 campaign. A confident and consistent centre forward, Dimitar Berbatov made his senior debut for his native Bulgaria when he entred the field as substitute in a 1–0 loss away to Greece in November 1999.
