Man Utd ace Berbatov: New form down to sheer hard work

Manchester United ace Dimitar Berbatov credits his superb form to a summer in the gym. The Bulgarian has revealed that hours spent pounding the streets this summer have helped him hit the ground running at the start of what could be a defining season for his career at Manchester United.

Berbatov said: "I'm just so happy and so confident at the moment.

"I feel like everything I imagine on the pitch will come true and that feels awesome.

"I have worked hard on my fitness. So hard. I'm not a weights guy, I'm sure you can see by my body. But I have been trying even to work on that. I ran six miles every day during the off season. I watched one World Cup match, went for a run. Then watched another and went for another run. This was my routine."
