Alex Ferguson was unsurprisingly quick to heap praise on hat trick hero Dimitar Berbatov after watching his side demolish Birmingham City 5-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Bulgarian could have had more, but his three and one each for Ryan Giggs and Nani proved to be enough.

Ferguson said: “It was marvellous.

“He could have scored more and we were a bit wasteful at times with our finishing, but you can`t complain at that performance.”

“I think it helps when you score an early goal. When we scored they had to open up and I think we capitalised on that.”


The Scot also had kind words for Wayne Rooney.

“The third goal was very, very exciting with the interchange between Berba and Rooney. It was right at half-time and it killed the match.

“Wayne showed fantastic control in the fourth goal to bring the ball from Edwin (van der Sar) out of the clouds.”

“The control of Rooney and setting up Ryan to square the ball for Berba – it was a fantastic goal.”
