Fulham boss Jol hands underfire Berbatov captaincy

Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov will wear the captain's armband against Manchester United today.

Fulham manager Martin Jol will ask the downbeat striker to lead from the front against Manchester United on Saturday in the absence of club captain Brede Hangeland.

Berbatov has scored just once this season but Jol said: "He doesn't speak much but has authority. That is why he is my second skipper."
