BBC Sport - Fulham 1-2 Tottenham: Meulensteen praises Berbatov

Meulensteen praises 'phenomenal' Berbatov

Fulham head coach Rene Meulensteen praises Dimitar Berbatov's "phenomenal" performance in his side's 2-1 loss to Tottenham.

Berbatov has scored just once this campaign and his agent has suggested he might leave Fulham in January, but the Bulgarian impressed on his return to the Fulham line-up and created Ashkan Dejagah's opener.

Tottenham responded through Vlad Chiriches and Lewis Holtby to condemn Fulham to a sixth defeat in a row, but Meulensteen was pleased with his side's commitment in his first match in charge following the sacking of Martin Jol.
