Price tag weighs heavy on Berbatov

BY foxsports • December 15, 2009

Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has confessed that he feels under pressure to live up to his huge price tag at Old Trafford.

The Bulgaria international joined United from Tottenham for £30.75million in September 2008 and has yet to truly establish himself as an Old Trafford favourite.

Quoted in the Daily Express, Berbatov said: "Every person is different in coping with the pressure of the price tag. Every person thinks differently. For me, sometimes it is difficult because people expect so much of me.

"The fans have probably seen glimpses of my best goals, passes and games. I know you need to show that all the time and that's my main goal - in every game to show my best game.

"But that's the way it should be because the people here have paid so much money for you. I try to give my best for the team to win things. I think I did that in my first season. We won the championship and I think everybody was happy about that."

So far this season Berbatov is United's second-highest league scorer with four goals from 13 appearances.
