Dimitar Berbatov might have only graced the White Hart Lane pitch for a couple of seasons but he certainly made a mark during his time in North London.
The striker’s class was immediately apparent as soon he arrived at Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2006 and helped the North Londoners to glory in the League Cup.
His performances eventually earned him a move to Manchester United in September 2018 for £30.75million (Guardian)
Berbatov went on to have four successful seasons at Old Trafford, where he won the Premier League title on two occasions.
Despite spending more time at United and winning more trophies there, the Bulgarian has revealed that he is equally fond of both Spurs and United.
When asked by a fan on during a Q and A on Instagram (as relayed by Football.London), whether he prefers Spurs or United, Berbatov responded: “How many times I need to answer this question? It’s like asking me which of my kids I love the most.
“I love both teams to death and also I love and respect every team I used to play for. Simple.”
The striker also named the goal he scored against Charlton in Tottenham 2-0 win at the Valley back in 2007 as one of the top three goals of his career.
Berbatov flicked Ledley King’s long-pass behind Talal El Karkouri and raced on to the ball before the defender and finished with composure to give Spurs the lead.
When asked to name his favourite goal, the 39-year-old said: “There are too many to pick just one, but maybe top three.
“The one against Roma with Leverkusen, the one against Liverpool with United and probably the one against Charlton with Tottenham.”
"Berbatov! Absolutely dazzling!"

Berbatov was certainly a success at Manchester United but I don’t believe he ever hit the same heights for the Red Devils as he did for Spurs. The two years that the striker spent at White Hart Lane was where he probably enjoyed the best form of his career.
