Berbatov too embarrassed to celebrate opening Man Utd account

Dimitar Berbatov explained his lack of emotion at scoring his first goals for Manchester United was down to missing easier earlier opportunities. Despite striking twice in the 3-0 win over Aalborg his sulky demeanour hinted at a return to his attitude with former club Tottenham.

"I did not celebrate the first goal because I was still angry with myself for missing the first chance," he told the Manchester Evening News.

"On that occasion, my shot was not right at all, in fact I was embarrassed by it. When you pay so much money for someone you should score chances like that... I was disappointed with the first one. Sometimes in a game you might only get one opportunity and I was trying to score.

"But I guess the most important thing was that we won," he added.

"The pressure is (always) there to score. Hopefully I can deal with that and handle it in a positive way."

"I feel happy playing in this team. It is everything I thought it would be. Ryan Giggs has been here since the beginning and says he never wanted to go anywhere else. I don't want to go anywhere either," the 27-year old concluded.
