Berbatov sends warning message to Nicolas Jackson after hat-trick against Tottenham

Dimitar Berbatov has warned Nicolas Jackson not to be carried away by his goalscoring performance in Chelsea’s 4-1 win against Tottenham on Monday.

Jackson scored a hat-trick— his very first as a footballer, and has received praise from fans and teammates.

Berbatov however, believes that while the goals are good for his confidence, the forward needs to keep working on his finishing.

“That hat-trick is going to be good for Nicolas Jackson, obviously,” Berbatov told Betfair.

“He’s stating his position by saying, ‘I can be the No.9 for Chelsea’ – but it’s still early days for him. He needs to continue to work hard to get scoring opportunities.

“Sometimes when he gets in a good scoring opportunity, his shot on goal is missing.

“The Tottenham game will be good for his confidence, although we can’t forget that it was 11 vs 9, so it was easy for him to get those scoring opportunities.

“The important thing was that when he got those scoring opportunities, he scored the goals.

“It’s a good hat-trick for him to build his confidence, but consistency will be a major factor for him.”
