Papers: Berbatov's no Red

Dimitar Berbatov's United Dream
It's clear Dimitar Berbatov has the ability to play for Manchester United - but does he have the pace? Tottenham's top talent has been linked with Old Trafford longer than any Spurs fan would like. And the heavy hints that he would like to play for a 'top team' are being dropped for Sir Alex Ferguson to hear. But, while the big Bulgarian showed once again yesterday that he has the flair to light up the United stage, there are real doubts about whether he would fit in with the way Fergie plays.

Elsewhere, the daily papers are full of post-match reaction after United's FA Cup victory over Tottenham Hotspur. According to The Times, the Reds coasted to victory, but only after a shaky opening period. The Guardian, meanwhile, claim the Reds' come-from-behind win was as much down to habit as it was ability on the day.

Angolan striker Manucho is also in the news after netting twice against Senegal in the African Nations Cup. The Daily Mail said: "Manucho scored with a powerful header and an opportunist finish from close range to improve to three goals in the tournament."
