Dimitar Berbatov backs Manchester United and Jose Mourinho

Former Manchester United player Dimitar Berbatov has come in defence of the club and Jose Mourinho, stating that it is too early to pass judgement on the team. However, he did say that United were disappointing against Brighton last weekend.

Dimitar Berbatov said, “It’s not been a good week for Manchester United and now they have a tough fixture to get through, but I really don’t think we can – or even should – pass judgement on my old team yet. “It’s not been a good week for Manchester United and now they have a tough fixture to get through, but I really don’t think we can – or even should – pass judgement on my old team yet.I didn’t expect the defeat at Brighton. No-one did.

United didn’t play well and they lost because Brighton wanted it more than them, simple as that.  That’s not a good thing but please don’t overreact to one defeat so early in the season.

The positive thing about the defeat is that it’s still only the second game of the season so there is a long way to go. I remember losing our second game in 2009-10, 1-0 at Burnley, and we finished second that season, one point behind Chelsea. Nobody was crying after that defeat. Sir Alex (Ferguson) was always calm. We beat Wigan 5-0 away from home in the next game and won eight in a row.”
