Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov has launched a stinging personal attack on Sir Alex Ferguson over the way he was frozen out towards the end of his spell at Manchester United.

Berbatov claimed that he lost so much respect for  Ferguson ‘as a person’ over the way he felt he was misled and mistreated that the 31-year-old could not bring himself to speak to the United manager when he left.
He joined Fulham for £5million on deadline day after Robin van Persie’s arrival at Old Trafford confirmed the end of Berbatov’s United career, four years after he became the club’s record £30.75m signing.
A Premier League Golden Boot winner in 2011, Berbatov knew the writing was on the wall when he was left out of United’s squad for the Champions League final at the end of that campaign and then made just five league starts last season.
‘I said goodbye to the people who deserve it but I couldn’t say goodbye to Ferguson,’ said Berbatov.  ‘I don’t think I deserved such  treatment, not playing in the last year, because I was the top scorer.
‘Maybe I should have gone when he left me out of the squad for the Champions League final,’ added Berbatov. ‘I know he’s the boss but he has lost, to some extent, my respect because of the way he treated me.
