United match winner in ‘shock’ exit?

Published Add your comment

Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov is reportedly on his last straw with manager Sir Alex Ferguson, after the match winner started off the bench for the seventh time in the last nine United games on Saturday.

During the week, video footage was revealed of Ferguson laughing at Berbatov as he apparently sulked on the bench in the Champions League round of 16 match with Marseille.


Ferguson reportedly sees Javier Hernandez as the striker he would rather have on the pitch from start to finish, often choosing Hernandez to work with Wayne Rooney rather than Berbatov.

Should the striker leave United, Ferguson will be hoping to get the £30 million back that he paid for the 30 year old to leave Tottenham in 2008.

Berbatov’s contract with Manchester United expires in 2012, and contract talks are said to have stalled because the Red Devil is not happy with his lack of starts.

Berbatov is currently the leading goal scorer in both Manchester United and the Barclays Premier League, with 20 goals so far this season. speculating that Berbatov is considering a move to Bayern Munich, though Bayern boss Louis Van Gaal is rumoured to be only willing to put £10 million on the table.
