Was he ever going to be anything else other than a success?
Indeed, Fulham fans have been captivated by the Bulgarian’s peerless levels of footballing style and effortless ability but the fact is that in spite of Berbatov’s much feted nous on the ball, he’s been backing it up with substance to boot.
Knocking away seven league goals, Berbatov is on course for a good goalscoring haul at Craven Cottage this season, but he does of course offer Martin Jol’s team so much more than a simple goalscoring outlet.
He is the focal point of attack and the man of which the Cottagers focus their play through. On his day, Berbatov remains one of the most outstanding acts in this division and while that might not have come every week in the Premier League this season, he’s done enough to earn his spot in this top 15.
