Not playing is painful - Berbatov

Dimitar Berbatov has admitted it hurts to be little more than a bit-part player in Manchester United's Premier League title quest - but is ready and willing to make an impact when required.

The Bulgarian has made just 10 league appearances so far this season, only half of which were starting spots, but was not even on the bench for the win over former club Tottenham a week ago. It is not quite how Berbatov thought his career would pan out when he joined United from Spurs for a club record £30.75million in 2008.

He told United Review: "It's just about being ready. We have a big squad and you know sometimes you are not going to play. It's sad and it's painful but you need to be strong and be prepared for when your team-mates need your help. We are a team and we want to win together."
