Berba speaks of best United day

20 September 2010 07:10
Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov happily accepted the praise after his hat-trick inspired the 3-2 triumph over Premier League rivals Liverpool on Sunday. The Bulgarian has cut a frustrated figure at Old Trafford since he joined from Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth £30million two years ago. However, his recent heroics have enamoured him to the Red Devils' faithful and he was delighted with the way the day panned out. He opened the scoring with a diving header from Ryan Giggs' corner before doubling the lead with a superb overhead kick. Steven Gerrard pulled Liverpool back into it with a penalty and a free-kick, but another header from the instrumental frontman secured all three points and he expressed his delight at hearing the crowd roar when his spectacular second struck the net. "It was probably my best day in a United shirt," said Berbatov. "Obviously I am happy. I am going home with a smile on my face, but I am nothing special. I am going home to play with my kids. "I never saw the ball go in the back of the net, but when I heard the crowd scream it was easy to guess what had happened. "It was a good goal, but as long as the ball hits the back of the net it doesn't matter."
