Berbatov struggling to cope

15 December 2009 08:48
Bulgaria international Dimitar Berbatov has admitted that he is struggling to win over the Manchester United fans. Since moving to Old Trafford from Tottenham for £30.75million in September 2008, the languid Berbatov has failed to live up to his massive price-tag, finding the net only 18 times in 61 appearances for Sir Alex Ferguson's side. He has failed to start a Premier League or Champions League clash since October and has scored only four goals so far this term. The 28-year-old told the Daily Express: "Every person is different in coping with the pressure of the price tag. "Every person thinks differently. For me, sometimes it is difficult because people expect so much of me. "The fans have probably seen glimpses of my best goals, passes and games. I know you need to show that all the time and that's my main goal - in every game to show my best game. "But that's the way it should be because the people here have paid so much money for you. I try to give my best for the team to win things. "I think I did that in my first season. We won the championship and I think everybody was happy about that."
