Berbatov would thrive if he was still at Manchester United

Dimitar Berbatov caused a split between sections of Manchester United fans. One side branded him lazy, the other stated he was a calculated player that didn't need to run around aimlessly.

One thing is for sure, though; his first touch, class on the ball, and comfort holding off defenders are second to none.

Unfortunately we never got to see Berbatov in a front triangle alongside Shinji Kagawa and Robin van Persie. There would have been so much effortless class on show that those three clicking would have meant dominance in abundance. 

It would have enabled Michael Carrick to sit back and pull the strings and two wingers to terrorise from the outside; meaning more space for this golden triangle.

Indeed we could still see centre-triangle this in effect with Wayne Rooney in place of Berbatov, yet with the arrival of Marouane Fellaini and Carrick holding down a prominent spot in the centre, it's unlikely to happen without Kagawa or Rooney being played out of position. 

FIFA this isn't, a headache for David Moyes is what it is, however.
