Man Utd hero Berbatov: I knew they'd be s*** again against Bournemouth

Manchester United hero Dimitar Berbatov admits defeat at home to Bournemouth didn't come as a great surprise.

Berbatov says the team's inconsistency this season was always going to lead to a result like Saturday.

"Inconsistency is always frustrating," he told Betfair. "It was the same when I was playing. Sometimes we'd have great games followed by two or three s**t games and then again you'd show what you can do.

"Of course back in the day, those performances weren't as regular as they are now. When I watch the games now, I get p****d off and angry. I understand because I've been there and I know what can happen.

"It's easier said than done, but Man United need to make sure they don't wait until their backs are against the wall.

"Games like this against Chelsea happen when you show your energy, you press together and you want to show everyone that you're playing for each other. It will probably happen again. The next game will probably be s*** again, so we'll wait and see."
