Fergie happy for Berbatov to stay

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed he would be happy for Dimitar Berbatov to stay at Manchester United but accepts why the Bulgarian wants to leave.

United's record signing has cut a lonely figure since being left out of the squad for the Champions League final defeat to Barcelona in 2010. Berbatov was further squeezed out last term thanks to the emergence of Danny Welbeck, in addition to the presence of Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez.

"I do not need to herald the abilities of Dimitar Berbatov, he is a fantastic talent," said Ferguson. "Last season he didn't quite get the amount of football he wants. At his age, it was difficult for him to accept his position in the forward line. He had Rooney, Welbeck and Hernandez in front of him, and they are all young men."
