|In terms of special football players who haver played for Manchester United, Berbatov is right up there with Eric Cantona in terms of smooth and skillful players who have worn the jersey.
His 1st was a poacher’s goal
Oh how did Tottenham let the Bulgarian striker get away? Actually, I don’t think they had much of a choice. He was dead set on leaving. The third goal is pure genius, as he makes it look so easy. To hold off the defender and turn and strike the ball cleanly on the volley is brilliant. If there’s something that Berbatov does on a regular basis, it’s score very tough goals and make them look like he’s doing it in his sleep.
He scored the game winner for Manchester United in their last game against Bolton, and he now might just go on a good scoring run from until the end of the season. Game winning goals often turn into streaks for strikers. If he does, you can say Manchester United will have the title all wrapped up, and then Rafa will really have something to complain about. Many will say that Manchester United will always miss Ruud, but Berbatov could be his replacement and silence any critics if he helps them clinch the EPL title. However, there are a ton of games left to play.
