Berba eyes Euro glory

Dimitar Berbatov is determined to help Manchester United win the UEFA Champions League following last season's defeat in the final. United fought bravely to try and defend their European title from 2007/8 but were ultimately beaten 2-0 by Barcelona in Rome. Berbatov, who moved to Old Trafford from Tottenham 12 months ago, is desperate to lift the trophy in Madrid next May. "After what happened in last year's final I think we're even more determined in Europe this time around," the Bulgarian told the club's official website. "For me, losing in Rome was doubly frustrating because I wasn't at the club when the team won in Moscow - I've never won the Champions League so losing to Barcelona was very upsetting. "This year our aim is to make it all the way to Madrid. The Bernabeu is one of the best stadiums in the world and I know we're good enough to make it back there and, this time, win it." Manchester United will discover their group stage opponents in Thursday's draw and Berbatov is looking forward to another tough competition. "There are many clubs with very, very good players," he said. "And remember, when you say the name Manchester United it inspires respect in a lot of people. Nobody will fancy playing us."
