Giggs Welcomes Berbatov’s Arrival

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has welcomed the signing of Dimitar Berbatov, saying the top Bulgarian striker is “a Manchester United type player.”

Giggs, who is the longest serving player at United, feels the new GBP 30 million player of the Red Devils will prove to be a big hit at Old Trafford.

“He has that physique and stature because he is over six foot, so he offers something a little bit different to Wayne Rooney or Carlos Tevez,” Giggs told British media.

“I am glad Dimitar is on the same side as me. I have seen his ability at first hand when he played against us for Tottenham,” Giggs added.

Berbatov could make his debut for United against fierce rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
