As.Monaco outclassed Arsenal earlier in the month of February as the French side ran right past Arsene Wenger’s men with a scoreboard of 3-1. DimitarBerbatov played a big role in this triumph as he scored a goal.
This match played a big importance for both teams as it was their Champions League last 16 first leg match. The 2nd match is scheduled to take place on March 17 but Arsenal has a big disadvantage as they have fallen behind in the scoreboard by 2 goals.
Berbatov is now being rumored on having an interest in making a return to the Premier League as the result that his team secured when playing against Arsenal has sparked a string of rumors linking the Bulgarian forward with a return to the league where he used to perform in a few years ago.
According to DimitarBerbatov, one of the main reasons on why Arsenal sustained their 3-1 defeat was due to the Premier League club being just way too predictable on the pitch which made things much easier for As.Monaco.
“To be honest, we were not surprised. Arsenal has very quick players and when they go forward they leave a lot of space at the back. We knew that and we had prepared well and took advantage of it. We knew their weaknesses and we exploited them and I think everyone can agree that we deserved our win. Our team is very young but very talented. It is not only about age but about class. If you prepare well and do what your coach says, you can see the result. We believed we could do something. This is for everybody.”As.Monaco’sDimitarBerbatov said.
The former Manchester United player is 34 years old but even at his fairly elevated age, he still manages to score goals as the Bulgarian attacker has proved that age is just a number and it’s not affected by class which is permanent. Even at his age, Berbatov would still receive offers from clubs in the Premier League but it depends on whether or not he decides on making a return to the top tier English league.
Berbatov might not be the same player he was a few years ago, but he still has a few more seasons left in him before taking up the option of hanging up his boots.
