Meulensteen confident Fulham can keep Berbatov

Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen remains convinced of holding onto Dimitar Berbatov.

The Bulgaria forward's agent revealed Berbatov would seek a move at the start of the month.

But Meulensteen is unfazed by talk of an exit.

"I think I can keep him," he said. "When I took over what we talked about was focusing on the six games.

"I said 'I want you to be focused, I want you to be committed, and if that's the case you're part of my team'.

"And that's the case. As soon as you get into January you enter a world of speculation, and we deal with things as and when.

"We have a good team of people around us to make sure we don't get caught off guard."
