Fergie vows to get the best out of Berbatov


LONDON, July 30 – Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson admits he struggled to get the best out of Dimitar Berbatov last season but he expects the Bulgaria striker to shine this year.

His perceived lack of commitment angered sections of the Old Trafford crowd and Ferguson confesses he made a mistake in the way he deployed Berbatov, who scored only 14 goals in 43 appearances.

But the former Bayer Leverkusen star has looked more dynamic during pre-season and, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez departing Old Trafford, Berbatov should get more chances to take centre-stage.

"I expected the form we’ve seen from Berbatov in pre-season so far," Ferguson said.

"Last season was a strange one for him and maybe we didn’t use him in the right way.

"We know exactly how to use him now – further up the pitch, playing as a centre-forward. He will improve and I think he will have a terrific season."
