Manchester United’s first-team coach Rene Meulensteen has told Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov to consider himself the world’s best striker.

“I said to him once in training to think of himself as the best musician in the world and, as a team, we’re the best orchestra in the world.”

“Everyone is playing the same tune and Berba is elevating the whole performance. He is a vital ingredient to what the team is trying to achieve,” Meulensteen told The Telegraph.

“Berba sees the art and beauty of bringing a ball down from 30 yards, then flicking it through with a back-heel. It’s an artistic approach which gives colour to the game and makes him colourful.”

“He wants to be key for the team. He understands what he needs to do to be key for the team and that’s clear in his performances.”
