HATCHET MAN: No goals, no effort, no idea: £31m Berbatov has really done Manchester United proud

As far as excuses go, Dimitar Berbatov's for failing to impress at Manchester United in his debut season is truly pathetic. After being outshone by Wayne Rooney and out-worked by Carlos Tevez theBulgarian sounds like he is trying to convince himself that becoming aflop is in fact a measure of success 'I want people to remember me as a very good and skilful player. I don't want to be remembered as a top scorer,' Berbatov said. 'I've played with strikers with 100 goals, who can't control theball. It seems like a three-metre pass when they're trying to controlthe ball with their feet.' Someone - Sir Alex Ferguson perhaps - should tell him thatgoalscoring and having a decent touch don't have to be mutuallyexclusive skills. Oh yeah, and putting in a bit more effort wouldn'thurt either.
