Dimitar Berbatov set to quit Old Trafford
The Bulgarian forward has fallen behind the likes of Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck in Sir Alex Ferguson’s preferences, and has had to watch on from the sidelines for the majority of this campaign.
Berbatov will look for a new club, and feels he can still play at the highest level.
“My time at Manchester United is running out. I no longer feel like a valuable part of this team,” he told bTV, translated to English by Sky Sports.
“I think I did well in the few opportunities that I received. But I am a little frustrated by the way this happened, I do not think I deserved it.
“I’ve talked 10 times or even more with the manager and he always told me there would be a place for me in the team. But after that I continued to stay on the bench.
“But I have dignity and I stopped going to such meetings, it is clear that I’m leaving United. It’s obvious that I have to leave.
“I’m looking for a new place now… I know I can still play at the highest level,” he concluded.
