Fergie Backs Dimi

We may only be two games into the new Premier League season, but what is blatantly obvious is that we won’t score that many goals this season, if we carry on the way we have been.

When Man United don’t score that many goals, ever since joining, Dimitar Berbatov has been made a scapegoat. The first striker who gets the blame is Berba and I believe that is unfair. We have Wayne Rooney, Michael Owen, Berbatov, Federico Macheda, Danny Welbeck and some other younger strikers.

There is no doubting that we haven’t seen the best out of Berbatov but Man United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has backed him to shine.

"It is his style of play rather than the effect he has on the game. He is a very good player and I am particularly happy with him," Ferguson told Sky Sports.

"Dimitar would like to score a goal"
"Strikers always feel as if scoring goals is the most important thing. That is the case with him and Michael [Owen], who could also do with one.
"He should have scored two on Wednesday [against Burnley]. His movement and positional play in the final third is very good.
"We are just waiting on that one goal because it will set him off. I am sure of that."
