Ferguson: Man Utd players must stop blanking Berbatov

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson wants his players to use Dimitar Berbatov more.

Berbatov has scored only three Premier League goals since a record £31m move from Spurs and Ferguson believes the reason for his struggle is that United's players do not realise how good he is and are too reluctant to pass to him.

Ferguson said: "I don't think we are using him enough. He is one of those players who can take a ball under pressure because he is so well balanced and has great upper body strength.

"Eastern European players can get their body between the man and the ball and you can never get it off them."
