New Fulham coach Meulensteen eager to get best out of 'genius' Berbatov

Newly-appointed Fulham coach Rene Meulensteen is determined to get the best out of Dimitar Berbatov now he has the chance to work with him again.

The Dutchman spent time with the Bulgarian striker at Manchester United and will now link up again with the man who has a ridiculous amount of ability but can never quite seem to harness it all on the pitch at the same time.

"It is without doubt the talent Dimitar brings to the table and also it is very clear sometimes the frustration that goes with it," Meulensteen told Sky Sports News.

"But I think that what you get with that sort of player, they are geniuses in some ways and I always find it a challenge to make sure that we can serve those players in the right way that they can bring out the best in themselves and serve the best purpose for the team."
