Fergie: All is not clear why Berbatov reserve16-04-2011
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson warned the Bulgarian Dimitar Berbatov to return his best form if he is again starting place in the team of Red Devils.
Berbatov, who is the team's top scorer so far on the season, lost his place in the starting eleven because of the excellent form of Mexican Javier Hernandez.
Bulgarians are expected today to get a rare chance for expression in the semifinals of the FA Cup against city rivals Manchester City for the punishment of the other holder Wayne Rooney. The match will be played at Wembley Stadium in London.
"Shame on Berbatov because he is a fantastic footballer. The reasons for this is obvious, however, reserve - the progress of Javier Hernandez in the last few months, amazing, "said Sir Alex Ferguson.
"It improves your game at any time, becomes stronger and is very difficult to leave a player out of the squad when he is in similar form. Each player faces the problem of Berbatov when another player they compete. This is a terrible moment for every player, "said the manager of the Reds'.
Ferguson, however, candidly admitted he did not expect such a rapid development of Javier Hernandez. "To be honest, no, I did not expect. When Ole Gunnar Solskjær came in the club, he said that his first season will be to integrate the club, get used to players and training. We did the same with Javier.
