Berbatov wants more game time
Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has spoken out about his lack of playing time at Old Trafford, claiming he is "not happy" with his bit-part role at the Premier League champions.
Berbatov, 31, was linked with a move away from United in the January transfer window but no deal was completed and it is now expected that the club will activate a one-year extension to his contract - a clause written into his deal when he signed for the Red Devils from Tottenham in 2008.
However, the Bulgarian has started just five Premier League matches this season and was famously left out of the United squad for last season's Champions League final defeat to Barcelona at Wembley.
"I am a Manchester United player, but I do not currently play in as many games as I want. I'm not happy that I do not play," Berbatov told Bulgarian sports website sportal.bg. " But I cannot blame anyone, especially in the media.
"When I have something to say, I go and talk face to face with the manager. He decides everything.''
Speaking about a reported move away from Old Trafford in the summer, Berbatov added: "There was nothing concrete as an offer to me. I read about such things, but they are more speculation. I do not know how long I will stay at Manchester United.
"To my knowledge, the clause to extend my contract for another year is automatically activated in March. I know nothing more.''
