Dimitar Berbatov discusses Man United future on Facebook. Should have used spell-check.
In case you’ve forgotten, Dimitar Berbatov is still a Manchester United player but he won’t be for much longer according to a post on his official Facebook page with very bad spelling.
Bought for in excess of £30 million in 2008, Berbatov was the leading scorer in the Premier League in the 2010/11 season before being excluded from the squad for the Champions League Final whupping at the hands of Barcelona at the end of that campaign.
Barring a couple of token performances since, the laid back Bulgarian and cold blooded assassin lookalike has been an outcast at Old Trafford and is widely expected to leave the club this summer.
He’s still there, however, and could still be there next season if he doesn’t sort his future out soon, a realisation that prompted the 31-year old to post the following message on his official Facebook page, an unorthodox method of handing in a transfer request we think you’ll agree.
Berbatov’s frustration is understandable and his call for help is likely to result in his exit from Old Trafford, if only because Sir Alex Ferguson is notoriously opposed to players publicly shedding light on life behind the scenes at Manchester United.
Still, after six years in England, Dimitar could do with brushing up on his spelling. ‘Talling’ anyone? ‘Goodbay’? Then again, it is his second language and we're not averse to a mistake or two ourselves, so maybe we should go easier on him.
Spelling errors or not, we reckon Dimitar’s wish to leave Old Trafford will soon be granted.
