Berbatov Has Rare Chance

Berbatov has a chance to get his place back

Dimitar Berbatov may get a rare start as Manchester United can take their foot off the gas a little against their German opponents.

Berbatov has struggled to get into the side in the Champions League over the last couple of months owing to the good form of Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez. This has led to the Bulgarian cutting a frustrated figure but ultimately he is the only person who can change the situation he finds himself in.

Berbatov missed a few games recently owing to illness which fuelled speculation he was at odds with the manager and the club. However, this seems not to be the case and Berbatov will now be looking to do what he does best, putting the football into the back of the net.

Berbatov is a useful player to have to bring in because he can take the place of either Rooney or Hernandez or even play at the very top of the team by himself. Many people will forge that he is still the leading scorer at the club this season in the Premier League which is a feat that few other players up and down the country can meet.

This is remarkable considering that he hasn’t played much lately. He will be very determined to end the season on a good note because it will leave Sir Alex Ferguson with a positive impression of the way the striker plays. In essence if he can end the season on a good note then there’s a greater chance he’ll be playing at the start of the next season.

Berbatov also offers United a much greater aerial threat which is something they have lacked in recent matches. Hernandez is very good in the air but he cannot dominate territory inside the penalty area in the same way that Berbatov can. He is also good enough to use the same improvisation skills as Hernandez to score headers from any position inside the area.

Berbatov is better than any other attacking player at United when it comes to holding the ball up and brining other players into the game. He pulls defenders out of position which leaves space in behind. He does this more effectively than Rooney because Rooney now sits at the top of the midfield as opposed to the shoulder of the defender.

Berbatov is a great player to back to score because he’ll have a steely determination to succeed.
