Dimitar Berbatov believes he made the right decision in leaving Tottenham Hotspur to join Manchester United.

The Bulgarian striker returns to White Hart Lane this evening in as bid to end Tottenham’s unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign.

Berbatov told The Sun: “I enjoyed my time there (at Spurs) and the fans were very good to me.

“But when you hear a club like Manchester United are interested and you have the chance to play in the Champions League, it is impossible to say no.

“I have ambitions and at my age it was the right time to try and achieve those.”

Berbatov added: “I credit my success to my mother. Her prayers and support are everything to me.

“I know all she does for me and I know nothing I do can ever pay back the amount of support she has given me.

“My grandparents are very important too, my grandfather is a very wise man and a great man to talk to.

“When I am home in the summer I will go to his allotment and help him dig, then we will take the fresh produce home to my grandmother and she will make the most wonderful food.

“The allotment has been the place for some great chats and it was there where we talked about me moving to a club where I could win major trophies and I asked him what he thought about Manchester United.”
