Jol: Berbatov worried Fulham fans wouldn't take to him

Fulham boss Martin Jol admits Dimitar Berbatov was worried about how the fans would take to him when he joined from Manchester United.

Berbatov struck twice in victory over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Jol said: "I didn't expect a player like him who could play all over the world to come to Fulham. He knows he will play a lot of games for me and that was great.

"The only thing he said was: 'Do you think they (the fans) will like me?' I said: 'I think they will love you.' I think they love him already."
