Schwarzer hails Berba impact

BY foxsports • September 25, 2012

Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has hailed the impact made by Dimitar Berbatov since his move to Craven Cottage.

Berbatov has enjoyed an impressive start to his Craven Cottage career, scoring twice on his first start against West Brom and then setting up Hugo Rodallega for a goal at Wigan on Saturday.

Schwarzer believes the Bulgarian's arrival could prove to be a masterstroke by Martin Jol.

"Dimitar Berbatov is an excellent player," the Australian told the club's website. "Everyone knows what a great player he is and he's been excellent for us since the day he arrived.

"He's a top pro who is happy to help out the young boys and I think he's a massive plus for us and we've seen that in the games he's played.

"When you've got new players added to the squad, it's always important to have that core of a team that have the experience and know what it's like to play for Fulham Football Club.

"I think the players that have come into the club have done extremely well."
