Separated at Birth: David Ferrer and Dimi Berbatov, bros in form
Dimitar Berbatov is in the best form of his Manchester United career, just this week bagging a brace against Blackpool. But the spotlight could soon shift from the Bulgarian striker as Pope and Swift (with a massive helping hand from the Magic Spongers) can reveal that Dimi has a twin brother and a pretty successful one at that. That’s right, Berbatov’s brother is in fact David Ferrer, the man who has just knocked Rafa Nadal out of the Australian Open and will face Andy Murray in the semi-finals.
It seems that the brothers are hitting top form together and Berbatov will be watching events in Australia closely to see if his brother can defeat Murray and make the grand slam final. Not only will the Manchester United No9 want to see his sibling succeed but he will want him to keep up his good form as any faltering from Ferrer could in turn knock Berbatov’s so far imperious form.
Who knows, Andy Murray may have a major role to play in how successful this season proves to be for Man United. Should the Scot knock Berba’s brother out of the Aussie Open then Dimitar may be too distraught to keep up his outstanding goalscoring streak. Brotherly affection works in the strangest of ways.
