Man Utd hat-trick hero Berbatov happy but calm

Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov was remaining calm after his hat-trick against Liverpool on Sunday.

The Bulgarian was the first United player in 64 years to net a treble against the Reds but he wasn't getting too carried away after guiding his side to a 3-2 win at Old Trafford.

"It was probably my best day in a United shirt," said Berbatov.

"Obviously I am happy. I am going home with a smile on my face.

"But I am nothing special. I am going home to play with my kids."

And Berbatov admitted he wasn't too sure about his speculative overhead kick in the 59th minute but said he knew it was a goal as soon as he heard the crowd.

"I never saw the ball go in the back of the net," he admitted.

"But when I heard the crowd scream it was easy to guess what had happened.

"It was a good goal but as long as the ball hits the back of the net it doesn't matter."
