Van Nistelrooy backs Berbatov to stay at Man United

Former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has urged Dimitar Berbatov to stay at Old Trafford, despite a disappointing second season for the Bulgarian.

Reports are rife that United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to cut his losses on Berbatov at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old has not really won over the vast majority of the United support since his club record £30.75 million move from Tottenham Hotspur at the start of last season.

"I can empathise with his situation," said van Nistelrooy, now with Bundesliga outfit Hamburg.

"He cost £30 million, there were big expectations and they haven't been met so far.

"He isn't playing regularly - he plays but not always - so, of course, that's a disappointment because expectations are sky high.

"But I think that, when he has the support of the manager and the lads, that he should just carry on and turn it around.

"I don't think he should leave yet. This is his second year so I think that he should give it another year at least - I wouldn't leave United that easily. I know what its like when you've left - when it's gone it doesn't come back anymore."
