Berbatov Vents Frustration On Facebook

Manchester United’s Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov stated on a social networking site his disappointment at being denied a chance to prove his worth at Old Trafford.

The 31 year old who moved to United in the summer of 2008 from Tottenham for a club record fee of £30m has found himself spending most of the time on the bench as Sir Alex Ferguson opted for Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck as partners to Wayne Rooney up front. The former Leverkusen frontman could only manage 12 appearances last season and has grown frustrated with the lack of first team opportunities.

However, the player insists that he still loves the club but would prefer a move away in his personal interest.

‘The truth is, I love this club, but I am not going to be useful to anyone, if I am not playing,’ he wrote on his Facebook page. ‘And I want to play, I want to help.

‘But for unknown reasons its not going to happen, or my chances will be limited, so it’s better for everyone if we say goodbye.

‘If not, I am professional and I will keep doing everything I can, to help my team and my teammates, whenever I have opportunity to do so.’

Fergie had only recently stated that the club would not be forced into selling Berbatov unless the interested clubs meet the valuation of £10m. But the player himself remains confused as to what is the actual transfer figure.

‘Because I am tired of speculation,i am telling you this. I read the papers and I see they say 10 million pounds is my price,’ he added.

‘I go and talk with Sir Alex, and he says to me 5 million…So who is telling the truth, what do you think??’
