London, Dec 26 (ANI): Manchester United's Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov, who is suffering from a ligament problem, needs knee surgery which could rule him out for three months.
Berbatov does not have to go under the knife straight away. But he has been playing through the pain barrier and surgery in the near future is deemed inevitable to solve the trouble.
It is another blow to boss Alex Ferguson, who has endured a spate of injuries this season. But it could mean more games for Michael Owen and lift his World Cup bid, The Sun reports. (ANI)
