Dimitar Berbatov had a great game against Fulham today, being integral to our game plan and assisting the all important second goal for Wayne Rooney before scoring himself.
After the game, Berbatov revealed he preferred setting up Rooney’s goal than he did scoring.
“I’m pleased,” said Berbatov. “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.”
Rooney scored his 32nd goal in 38 games in all competitions today and Berbatov backs him to score even more.
“I think Wayne can go over 40 goals,” he continued. “We have plenty of games till the season is over so I wish him luck and we’re all going to help him to go over the 40 line. I think at the moment he is the best in the world. He is still so young so he has chances to become even greater. Like I’ve told him many times, just stay healthy and he can achieve everything.”
