Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has hailed the impact made by summer signing Dimitar Berbatov.

The former Manchester United forward has enjoyed an impressive start to his Craven Cottage career, scoring twice in two Premier League starts.

And Schwarzer believes the Bulgarian's arrival could prove to be a masterstroke by manager Martin Jol.

"Dimitar Berbatov is an excellent player," the Australian told the club's website. "Everyone knows what a great player he is and he's been excellent for us since the day he arrived.

"He's a top pro who is happy to help out the young boys and I think he's a massive plus for us and we've seen that in the games he's played.

"When you've got new players added to the squad, it's always important to have that core of a team that have the experience and know what it's like to play for Fulham Football Club.

"I think the players that have come into the club have done extremely well."
