Fulham handed Berbatov boost

Fulham forward Dimitar BerbatovDimitar Berbatov has handed Fulham a boost by claiming that he is happy at the club despite reports linking him with a move to Monaco.

The 32-year-old Bulgarian hitman has enjoyed a successful debut season with the Cottagers following last summer’s move from Manchester United.

However, having notched 15 goals for the Londoners, big-spending French Ligue 1 new boys Monaco amongst other clubs have earmarked Berbatov as a summer transfer target.

Cottagers boss Martin Jol has always maintained that he wants to keep Berbatov at Craven Cottage and now the player has admitted that he has no desire to depart.

Speaking to the Bulgarian media after scoring two goals in a charity matched staged in honour of his former international team-mate Stiliyan Petrov, who announced his retirement from football earlier this month as he continues to fight against leukemia, Berbatov said: “I love England, people respect me there. It’s one of the best leagues in Europe. We’ll see what will happen, but I am happy in Fulham under Martin Jol.

“Monaco is a nice place, I haven’t been there yet, but we’ll see.”
