Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov recalls the "f***ing unbelievable" feeling of scoring a late winner to complete his hat-trick against Liverpool.

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has recalled the "f***ing unbelievable" feeling of scoring the winning goal against bitter rivals Liverpool.

The Bulgarian enjoyed arguably the finest day of his United career when English football's two most successful clubs faced off at Old Trafford in September 2010, scoring a hat-trick in a 3-2 win for Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

Berbatov scored twice before Steven Gerrard netted a brace of his own to wipe out United's lead, only for Berbatov to have the last laugh with an 84th-minute winner.

"When you're Manchester United at Old Trafford, of course you're going to put pressure on teams. We were always scoring goals in the last minute. It is in the air. You see that something is coming, you smell that something is coming. And I was so confident that day, I was sure that if I had one more chance, I would score," Berbatov told United's official website.

"When Sheasy [John O'Shea] floated the ball into the area, as a striker you need to look and move for the space in the box. Even though there were many, many players in the box in that situation, if you know where to stand, where there will be space, how to position yourself... sometimes the ball is going to come for you. That was the case in that moment.

"As a young striker, many people told me that one second in football can be very important. If you jump one second before him, it's over, you win. Sheasy put the ball in, I timed my jump one second before [Jamie] Carragher, it was so easy for me to get the ball, get the header, get the goal.

"Game over. We win. After that, everything is a blur. You're running blind. You don't see anything but colour. Let me tell you, that feeling is f***ing unbelievable."

Berbatov played 149 times for United in total, scoring 56 goals.
