Dimitar Berbatov – what a footballer.
He has actually not yet officially retired, but has been without a club since leaving Kerala Blasters last year.
Now 38, it would probably be fair to say that the forward’s best years are behind him, although he has never been a player to rely on pace and energy.
Manchester United ultimately took the Bulgarian away from Spurs in 2008, but it seems clear that the Tottenham fans still have a high opinion of the striker given some of their comments about him.
Indeed, on Thursday, the London club’s official Twitter page posted a video of a goal which Berbatov scored against West Ham United.

And that led to a number of Spurs supporters taking to social media.
Some are still unhappy with Berbatov for joining United, but there is a general appreciation for his talent, which has helped him enjoy a brilliant career.
