Sir Alex Ferguson has praised the effort of Dimitar Berbatov today following his goal and assist against Fulham.

The manager claims it was important for the Bulgarian striker to get a goal for himself after missing a couple of headers earlier on.

“The work by Berbatov was fantastic football and he just laid it on a plate for Wayne who took it well,” Ferguson said. “He is intelligent, he has good composure on the ball and he adds to the team all the time. The making of the second goal was absolutely superb. It was very important, because he had a few opportunities, but he took one.”
