Berbatov`s Desire

Berbatov`s Desire

Some players just get better with age.

They change their game to accommodate the aging process but still produce performances that enable them to be operatives in top-flight football.

Classic examples of this type of professional being our own Mark Schwarzer plus those two youngsters at Manchester United; Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes, both of whom are nearer forty than thirty!

Therefore, it`s interesting to read that our own Dimitar Berbatov harbours thoughts of playing on until his 40th birthday, commenting in a leading tabloid paper,

"I`m not a keeper, Ryan Giggs or Paolo Maldini, but I want to play until I am 40."

"I want to play in England for several more years. I like England as a place. I like the mentality, culture and its football."


Our feeling is that with his laid-back, but very effective style, Dimitar could very well get his wish, providing he steers clear of injuries.

But, if he`s looking to prolong his club career, what about his international career, something he gave up on a couple of years back?

Well it looks like that decision is one he`s not going to change his mind about with the former Bulgarian international remarking in the same red-top,

"I`m standing by the decision I made more than two years ago. My time has passed."

I wonder, I just wonder, if Dimitar would be thinking down the same lines if Bulgaria were more than a half decent side!
