London, Oct.2 (ANI): Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov has admitted to being a failure in his first season with Manchester United and added that the stress of it all gave him sleepless nights.
In an interview to The Sun, Berbatov, 28, said: "In my first year I was disappointed in myself. I need to say that. It was a big pressure for me and maybe I failed myself. I think I wanted to prove myself to these supporters."
He added: "You must remember, they are used to Best, Charlton, Cantona. I am just Dimitar. I got a number of assists, but I must score more goals. I don't know what I am doing wrong sometimes. Maybe it's luck, maybe it's me... who knows?
The former Bayer Leverkusen ace also concedes he struggled to control his nerves.
"My nerves were too much and that is my responsibility," said Berbatov, who has made 53 appearances for United - scoring 16 times - since his 30.75 million pound switch from Tottenham on transfer deadline day in August last year.
Two months into his second season he still splits opinion among United fans, with some seeing the clever flicks as inspirational nd others seeing his languid style as just plain lazy. (ANI)
