Dimitar Berbatov has today confessed that he does feel the pressure of £30m price tag which enabled him to join Manchester United from Spurs.

He reckons the fans have seen some of his best in the year and a half he has been at the club, although there is more to come.

“The fans have probably seen glimpses of my best goals, passes and games,” said Berbatov. “I know you need to show that all the time and that’s my main goal – in every game to show my best. I think every person is different in coping with pressure, every person thinks differently. For me, sometimes it is difficult because people expect so much of me. But that’s the way it should be because the people here have paid so much money for me. I try to give my best for the team to win things. I think I did that in my first season. We won the championship and I think everybody was happy about that.”
