Manchester United's Dimitar Berbatov: I am more than just a goalscorer
Published : 11 Jun 2009 10:42:08
Berbatov has been criticised by United fans since his club-record £30.75 million move from Tottenham for his laid back approach and nonchelant demeanour on the pitch. It did not help matters that the Bulgarian managed only 14 goals in all competitions last season, with a section of United supporters even booing the 28-year-old towards the end of the campaign. However, Berbatov believes the criticism is unfair and that he contributes more than just goals. He said: "I want people to remember me as a very good and skilful player. I don't want to be remembered as a top scorer. "I have played with strikers with 100 goals who can't control the ball. It seems like a three metre pass when they are trying to control the ball with their feet." Recent reports have suggested Berbatov might even be on his way out of Old Trafford. However, the player's agent, Emile Danchev, has said such claims are wide of the mark. Danchev said: "Despite speculation that he may leave, I want to declare that Dimitar will play for Manchester United next season. "He will stay and we hope he will win what he missed out on this year."
