Berbatov playing catch-up at Man Utd, admits Ferguson

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has no fears over Dimitar Berbatov's indifferent start to his Old Trafford career. "We would have rather had Dimitar on July 1 than August 31," reflected Ferguson. "He will improve us, there is no question about that at all. "But we are playing catch-up fitness-wise. "It is difficult to say how long it will take because he is quite a languid mover. "He is a very quick decision-maker, though, and he has a composure and calmness about him."
