Dimitar Berbatov gives his thoughts on staying confident in tough times, improving United's away form and the characteristics required to win the most unpredictable title race yet...
Have you ever lost confidence during your time at United?
Of course. Many times. Sometimes you don't play well or you don't score and in those times the pressure comes from all around you, as well as from yourself. You can find yourself doubting yourself. But that's when you need to keep the faith and realise everything is going to be okay. You work hard in training and keep doing the things you're good at.
