What can you say about Dimitar Berbatov. One game he’s lazy and doesn’t seem like he wants to be involved and then the next game he does the amazing and the genius. It was a case of the later against Blackburn Rovers, as Berbatov not only got a hat trick but added two more goals as well, scoring a total of five goals.
What’s interesting about Berbatov though, and what makes him an exceptional soccer player, is his ability to create and help build the attack for Manchester United. Yes, in today’s game he was the goal scorer, but he’s also many times a big part of helping United hold on to the soccer ball and let plays develop and then make the killer pass. And he always does it with such style, like he doesn’t care all that much and this game is just too easy for him.
Take a look at the video below to see all five goals from Dimitar Berbatov.
Berbatov had this to after the match:
“I can’t believe it. I scored five in a game but it happened,” Berbatov said. “I have scored that many before but it was a long time ago back home in Bulgaria.
“Today I did it in the Premier League. To stand next to people like Cole and Shearer is a great honour.”
It took Berbatov just 71 seconds to open his account, adding another before the break and then scoring three more times after the restart. “The first goal was the most important,” he added.
“It gives you the confidence to play. As a striker, people do tend only to look at the goals you score. I am more concerned with how I play but today was all about goals for me.”
