Dimitar Berbatov was left out of Manchester United’s starting line-up again, much to the surprise of many fans who had been expecting the Bulgarian to make a return after barely getting on the pitch this season.
Sit Alex Ferguson still insists that the striker has a future at the club, although this is becoming more and more difficult to believe.
However, it is good to see that in light of being dropped, Berba is continuing with his great attitude, which should be admired.
“It is hard because of the number of strikers we have,” said Ferguson. “Michael Owen is there, Federico Macheda, Mame Biram Diouf. Danny Welbeck won’t be back next week but probably the week after. It is not easy. Dimitar has been training terrific. His attitude is spot on. He will get his game time as the season wears on. There is no question about that.”
