Dimitar Berbatov has admitted that he was not always a fan of the home kits that Tottenham Hotspur had during his two-season stint at the club.

Although Berbatov came to Spurs in the summer of 2006 on the back of a few impressive seasons in the Bundesliga, the Bulgarian was a relative unknown to most fans.

However, within months of arriving at White Hart Lane, it was clear that the striker was a special talent as he mesmerised fans with his ability to be a constant threat despite playing with languid ease.

Berbatov formed a formidable strike partnership with Robbie Keane and was part of the League Cup-winning team under Juande Ramos in 2008, scoring a penalty against Chelsea in the final.

That earned the centre-forward a big-money move to Manchester United in 2010, with the striker winning two Premier League titles during his four years at Old Trafford.

Berbatov has now spoken about his experience of playing for both clubs and admitted that he was not always a fan of the shirts that he wore at Spurs.

Holding up the home shirt from the 2006-07 season, he told BT Sport’s What I Wore: “Ugly shirts. I was saying this to everybody when I was playing at [all] my teams, ‘Who is designing this shirt?! Who is designing our suits? I don’t like them. Put me in charge!’. The white, in my mind, is okay.”

However, the Bulgarian was a fan of the brown kit and gold number which was the third strip used during the 2006/07 season. He said about that kit: “It is dark with some gold elements. It’s a bit like, ‘okay, we’re here, we represent’. We want to feel special.”

Whenever I think of that dark and gold kit, the image I get in my mind is of Berbatov during the 4-0 FA Cup victory at Craven Cottage. So, it is good to hear that he is a fan of the kit.

The only thing I didn’t like about our home kits during Berbatov’s era was the red ‘Mansion’ sponsorship.

Other than that, I liked the minimalistic and clean design.
