Dimitar Berbatov has been very praiseworthy of his team mate Wayne Rooney, claiming that he is the best player in the league.

Like every other United player these days, Berbatov has been asked how we will cope without Cristiano Ronaldo, but our Bulgarian reckons we already have a player, in Rooney, who will add a lot more to our team than Ronaldo did.

“Wayne is the biggest talent in the Premier League,” said Berbatov. “We have lost a great player in Ronaldo, but even when he was at the club Wayne was still the biggest natural talent for me. He has much more to his game than Ronaldo. I wish Cristiano well, but he is our past now and Manchester United can become bigger and better without him.”
