Dimitar Berbatov, who was the Premier League’s top scorer last season, has barely got a game this season, with Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez all head of him in pecking order.
Despite this, he’s scored 7 goals in the 10 appearances he’s made in the league and is waiting for his opportunity to score more.
“It’s just about being ready,” Berbatov said. “We have a big squad and you know sometimes you are not going to play. It’s sad and it’s painful but you need to be strong and be prepared for when your team-mates need your help. We are a team and we want to win together. Every time I have played I think I have done well. I’m ready and waiting whenever the boss gives me a chance to show my quality and deliver. I want to do as much as I can to help us win the title.”
