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.
DIMITAR_BERBATOVBerbatov failed to convince during his first Old Trafford following a 30 million pounds move from Tottenham last September.

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."
