Manchester United legend Dimitar Berbatov announces retirement
What's the story?
In case you didn't know...
The Bulgarian forward enjoyed a 20-year long career that saw him donning the colours of CSKA Sofia, Bayer Leverkusen, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Fulham, AS Monaco, PAOK and finally Kerala Blasters.
The forward, who was renowned for his impeccable first touch and volleying skills made over 700 appearances for club and country and scored more than 300 goals during his career.
Arguably one of the greatest players in the history of Bulgarian football and the best to come out of the country since former Ballon d'Or winner, Hristov Stoichkov, Berbatov retired from international football in 2010 after becoming his nation's leading goal scorer with 48 goals from 78 appearances.
The heart of the matter
Dimitar Berbatov officially announced his retirement from football today through his official Instagram account. The former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur forward had been without a club since 2018 after having last donned the jersey of ISL side Kerala Blasters during the 2017-18 season.
