London, Jan 10 (ANI): Ace striker Dimitar Berbatov's Manchester United career is in jeopardy as he battles a crisis of confidence.
Sir Alex Ferguson, one of Berbatov's greatest supporters, is losing faith with the Bulgarian, who has struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford since joining from Tottenham 18 months ago.
Berbatov has become a target for United fans, which has led to him shrinking even further into his shell, News of the World reports.
A source close to Ferguson said: "Berbatov is a real puzzle and a problem. He's so lacking in confidence that it's almost as if he's scared to go out and express himself."
"On the big occasions, somebody like Wayne Rooney grows in stature, but Berbatov hides away. He just seems to shrink. He should have everything it takes to succeed and Fergie certainly believed in him, but it's just not working out," the source added.
Ferguson will now consider cashing in on Berbatov in the summer to raise funds to make another move for Karim Benzema. (ANI)
