One lucky punter has won just shy of £3,000 thanks to former Manchester United star Dimitar Berbatov.

Football fan Gary Weir was left fuming after his 14-fold accumulator with Betfair over the weekend was let down by just one goal in the Bundesliga.

From a long list of bets, the only unsuccessful selection was for there to be over 2.5 goals in the fixture between Bochum and Borussia Dortmund, which finished 1-1.

Even more tough for Weir to take was that Dortmund had a late goal ruled out by VAR for offside in a move where the attacker did not even touch the ball.

Marius Wolf for Dortmund thought he had scored in the 55th minute until a dreaded VAR decision ruled out the equaliser.

Midfielder Julian Brandt eventually equalised five minutes before full-time but that would not be enough for Weir to win his £2,732.67.

Luckily, in stepped former Bulgarian striker Berbatov, who judged it to be the most unfair Betfair bet over the weekend.

Berbatov said: “I saw the Dortmund game and the goal should have stood. If I scored that and it was disallowed, I would be devastated.

“Getting 13 legs right and being let down by one thanks to that decision is tough, I feel their pain, but I have spoken to the people at Betfair and they have agreed to pay them out as a winner, after all it’s only fair.”

Premier League winner Berbatov each week reviews bets which have been affected by unfair football decisions and, in his role as ‘VAR-Batov’, asks Betfair traders to put the biggest injustice right by paying out the winnings or refunding bets.

Berbatov has already resettled or refunded 300 bets this season as a result of his rulings.
