Results for Dimitar Berbatov

Should Spurs sign Berbatov? What do you think?

10:00 pm



Now here is a question for Spurs fans everywhere, would you sign a 35-year-old (36 at the end of January) striker who has Premier League experience and is a free agent?

The man in question is of course, former Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov. His agent, Emil Dantchev, feels he has another 18 months left in him and another 35-year-old, Zlatan Ibrahimović, isn't doing too badly in the Premier League is he.

"Dimitar feels he can play for at least another year and his priority would be to come back to England."

The former Bulgaria captain was released by Greek club PAOK Salonika in June. Would he be someone we could have to help Vincent Janssen develop his game? 

It isn't just what you do on the field at his age but what you do off it, on the training ground as well. Michel Vorm appreciates that is part of his role, the same sort of role Berbatov could fill and his wages wouldn't be huge anymore.

He scored 94 goals in 227 Premier League games with a further 42 assists, that's the record of a top striker. For us, he scored 46 goals in 102 games with a further 24 assists and he won the League Cup with us. He had a direct hand in 70 goals in just 102 games, just the sort of experience our talented but inexperienced youngsters could learn from.

Perhaps he could be worth a punt as cover for the remainder of the season. What do you think?

Berbatov, Spurs U-15's, Austin, Alderweireld

Quick snippets of news with the basics, Dimitar Berbatov, Tottenham U-15's, Charlie Austin and new signing Toby Alderweireld.

Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov has turned down advances from Aston Villa and will sign for Olympiacos of Greece. The 34-year-old Bulgarian international is his countries all-time leading goalscorer. He has spent the last two seasons at Monaco netting 18 goals in 53 games.

The 26th edition of the Lion Cup will take place on August 14 and 16, involving the Under-15 teams from Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool. Singapore's National Football Academy (NFA) U-15 and U-16 squads.

Nobody is willing to pay the £15 million (US$23.11m - AUS$30.93m - €20.83m) asking price for Charlie Austin. The Queens Park Rangers striker is one of the backup options for Spurs but Austin is known to want regular Premier League football, which seems unlikely with the form of Harry Kane.

Toby Alderweireld spoke to HLN at the end of May and was looking forward to playing with Jan Vertonghen then.

"It would be very nice to play again with Jan. I am very happy in the Premier League, which really suits me."

Het Laatste Nieuws (HLN) is a Dutch language newspaper based in Brussels so despite Ronald Koeman quoting and clinging onto old indications given before the season close, Tottenham were chasing him and he knew where he wanted to play. Sensible lad.

Fabregas in a Barcelona Shirt

During Spain's World Cup celebrations, Arsenal's want away captain, Cesc Fabregas, donned a Barcelona home shirt.

I bet he'll be popular with the Arsenal fans within the next few days. Unless Barcelona meet Arsenal's valuation; and that's not likely, given the financial predicament the Spanish La Liga Champion's are in, it looks as though he'll be staying with the Woolwich Wanderers.

Last thing you want is an unhappy player spoiling pre-season preparations. All Everton and Spurs fans witnessed firsthand what kind of influence one unhappy prima donna can do to the spirit in the dressing room.
