I’ve got to leave United: Berbatov

Dimitar Berbatov believes it would be "better for everyone" if he left Manchester United this summer.

Berbatov's four-year stay at Old Trafford looks to be coming to a close after he found himself outside manager Sir Alex Ferguson's first-team plans last season.

"The truth is, I love this club, but I am not going to be useful to anyone if I am not playing. And I want to play, I want to help," he said.

"But for unknown reasons it's not going to happen, or my chances will be limited, so it's better for everyone if we say goodbye.

"If not, I am professional and I will keep doing everything I can to help my team and my team-mates, whenever I have opportunity to do so."
