Man Utd boss Ferguson admits Berbatov rattled by critics

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says he never doubted the talent of Dimitar Berbatov.

Berbatov has been in fine form this season and Ferguson believes the Bulgarian has finally settled into life at Old Trafford.

Fergie said: "Not everyone has questioned Dimitar. He has a lot of admirers, particularly at this club.

"But when we buy a player for a lot of money, there is more focus on him.

"If they have an odd bad game there is a criticism which other players may not get.

"He worried about it himself but I told him he has to dismiss the press.

"Dimitar has had some terrific games for us. He is enjoying his football and he will play against Liverpool on Sunday."
