Constant training ground spat keeping Berbatov on toes: Evra

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

LONDON - Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has Defender has said that his constant training ground spat is keeping striker Dimitar Berbatov on toes.

Evra vowed to nag Berbatov all the way to a 25-goal Premier League target.

Berbatov struck both goals in Manchester United’s 2-0 Boxing Day win against Sunderland to take his Premier League tally to date to 13.

He is nicely on course to reach the 25-goal mark set by boss Alex Ferguson but Evra will keep geeing him along.

Evra said: “We argued a bit in training when he was missing a goal. But he said ‘Don’t worry, I will score in the game’. And he showed me that.

“I am kidding when I say argue with him. But I keep moaning at him when he doesn’t score and he moans at me when I miss a cross or something like that. It is a joke between me and him. He is working hard. He is a good guy and different class.”

Berbatov has had to shoulder the goal scoring burden this season, with Wayne Rooney still not having scored in open play for United since last March.

Ferguson, though, has faith Rooney will come good and go on a scoring run in the second half of the season. (ANI)
