Man Utd boss Ferguson: Berbatov needed that

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is counting on Dimitar Berbatov's goal scoring performance yesterday against Portsmouth to lift the striker's confidence.

Berba struck a beauty in the 5-0 thumping of Pompey.

Ferguson told MUTV: "It was a magnificent goal, absolutely brilliant.

"The confidence it brought to his game after that was brilliant. It was good to take him off, because he got the applause from the crowd and it was terrific. He's had a good performance today."
