Berbatov educated Betfair: “Seven defeats in 11 Champions League matches under Ole Solskjaer is not good ample for United.

“I get that but normally there is further to soccer than the statistics present.

“Is Solskjaer’s job at threat after the defeat in Switzerland? Come on, you most likely can’t be vital. United have carried out 4 video video video games in the Premier League and gained three of them.

“One defeat in the Champions League does not put Ole’s job in jeopardy. I don’t see any point in discussing Solskjaer’s future so early in the season.

“United have a strong squad, have made excellent signings who are bedding in, and we should judge them at the end of the group stage, not after one match.”

And Berbatov, who gained two Premier League titles at Man Utd between 2008 and 2012, has geared up his help to Jesse Lingard.


The England winger’s sloppy as soon as extra go on Tuesday night gave Theoson Siebatcheu the prospect to realize Young Boys’ Ninety fifth-minute winner.

Berbatov added: “Lingard has had a combined few days. His objective in route of Newcastle was very good, a terribly clever and composed end.

“You truly actually really feel excessive after a objective like that and may be discovered crashing as soon as extra all one of the simplest ways proper right down to earth everytime you make a mistake that prices your workforce, as Lingard did in route of Young Boys.

“It occurs to the correct of us and Jesse can bounce as soon as extra. But the incident confirmed as quickly as additional why focus is so vital in soccer.

“There will be plenty more opportunities for Lingard and United to put things right, starting when they go to West Ham [on Sunday].”

But Berbatov is involved about Donny van de Beek’s Old Trafford future after he was substituted at half-time in route of Young Boys.

I’m not shocked by the speedy impression he has made at United and he’ll solely get better because of the season goes on. You cannot argue collectively collectively together with his goalscoring and the aura that he brings to the workforce.

The Dutch midfielder, 24, began merely FOUR Premier League video video video games final time interval and Berbatov is anxious his days in Manchester are numbered.

The Bulgarian icon talked about: “Van de Beek is understanding of time to keep away from losing plenty of his United profession.

“He started against Young Boys but was substituted at half-time. This has been the story of his time at the club.

“If he performs, he is launched off. If he comes on, he’ll get 10 minutes. He in no means will get the prospect to settle and present what he can do.

“It’s merely not figuring out… United paid giant cash for him. But this is what occurs everytime you spend cash merely to fulfill your followers.

“I still hope he gets a proper chance but it is going to be very difficult for him and the club may decide to cut their losses, if they can.”
