After having made over 50 appearances as a player of Fulham, Berbatov opted to make a move to As.Monaco. It was a huge change not only in club but also in country and league as Berbatov went from playing in the Premier League to joining the French League.
Dimitar Berbatov did not have any experience playing in the French League prior to joining As.Monaco but it not stop him from making a move to what was a new playing style for the Bulgarian attacker.
The veteran forward and former player of Manchester United has now revealed that it actually wasn’t difficult on making a move to such a different league as he was eager and in search of something new.
“I was looking for something new. When Monaco contacted me, I spoke about it with Patrice Evra, one of my very good friends, and he said good things about the team. I know Ricardo Carvalho . I played against him in England so I don’t feel like a new player. In fact, it was easy for me to choose. It is a great team. It is a new adventure.”’’ Berbatov stated.
Berbatov was originally viewed as a short term replacement for Radamel Falcao as the Colombian forward signed for Manchester United and even prior to joining the Premier League club, Falcao was suffering from injuries and this is why Berbatov was brought as a way to fill in the boots of the Colombian attacker.
On May 16 of the current year Berbatov signed a one year contract extension at the club and it remains unsure if he will be turning into a more consistent and regular player for the French team taking into consideration that Radamel Falcao is on the wish-list of Louis van Gaal and the Dutch manager of Manchester United could sign Falcao on a permanent deal instead of having him only on a loan contract.
