Jol blasts Berbatov for shirt gesture



Fulham manager Martin Jol described striker Dimitar Berbatov as "stupid" after the Bulgarian was booked for a bizarre T-shirt gesture after scoring in Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Southampton.

Berbatov scored his sixth goal for the London side after eight minutes at Craven Cottage before Rickie Lambert levelled five minutes from time.

Berbatov was yellow-carded for his celebration which involved revealing a T-shirt which read: 'Keep calm and pass me the ball'.

"It was a bit stupid and I will have to have a word with him," said Jol.

"He probably thought he would get away with it as he never gets booked. It wasn't the brightest thing to do but he wanted to make a statement.

"He tells the youngsters every day to play with confidence, keep the ball and don't be afraid. You need confidence and self-belief to play your football. He wants us to play in a certain style and that is the message he's trying to get across."
