Bulgaria: Berbatov Was No Failure, Sir Alex Says Dimitar Berbatov of Fulham (R) celebrates with Fulham`s manager Martin Jol (L) after scoring a penalty against Arsenal during the English Premier League soccer match between Arsenal and Fulham at The Emirates Stadium, London, Britain, on 10 November 2012.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has defended Dimitar Berbatov on the striker's return to Old Trafford with Fulham.

Ferguson has argued that the Bulgarian forward's stay at Old Trafford was a success, even though he was used as a fourth-choice striker last season.

"I don't think Dimitar was a failure here," said Ferguson ahead of Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round tie against Fulham, according to the Daily Mail.

"But I can see why he would polarise opinion. Some people like to see players running through brick walls all the time. Dimitar was not that type of player," he added, referring to Berbatov's trademark style.
