Fulham boss Jol hails two-goal Berbatov

Fulham boss Martin Jol was delighted with two-goal Dimitar Berbatov after victory over West Bromwich Albion.

Steve Sidwell added the third in the 89th minute to hand Fulham their second win of the season.

"I think he did more than he has ever done before in his life," the Dutchman said.

"He was at the back, he was in midfield, he was up-front and he scored a good goal so I was happy.

"We had a young bench and that is why I was so pleased with Dimitar."

Jol is now hoping former Manchester United frontman Berbatov can become the club's new talisman.

"That is a challenge for him," he said. "I think he scored 23 goals when I had him at Spurs.

"I'm sure that if he is fit then he will do what Clint Dempsey did for us."
