The former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has said that he is very happy to have signed for Fulham. He was not enjoying his time at Manchester United at all and he should have taken the transfer one year ago.
Berbatov joined Fulham on 31st of August which was the last day of the pre season transfer window. Berbatov has joined the club on a contract of two years. According to the Man Utd news, Fulham has paid a transfer fee of 4 million pounds for buying Berbatov.
Berbatov made his debut for Fulham against West Ham United. That match was played on 1st of September at Boleyn Ground, London. Fulham had to suffer a comprehensive defeat in that match. West Ham United won that match by a profound margin of 3-0. Berbatov didn’t start that match, but, he came to play as substitute at the start of the second half. He didn’t look in great touch, but, that was only his first match of the season and he could be expected to play better in the further matches.
The West Ham team was playing on its home ground. A large no. of fans was out there to support the home team and they would have been delighted with the performance of their team in the match. The West Ham took the lead in the very first minute of the match when Kevin Nolan latched on the cross of Andy Carroll and blasted the ball into the goal post. Winston Reid doubled the lead of West Ham in the 29th minute with a fantastic header.
Fulham got into deep trouble when Matthew Taylor found the net just a few minutes before the half time. The West Ham defenders did a brilliant job for their team and didn’t let Fulham score even a single goal throughout the match. Fulham will play its next match against West Bromwich Albion on 15th of September at Craven Cottage.
