Dimitar Berbatov Why fan chant made me feel uncomfortable

For a supremely confident player with such extravagant skill and poise, it was a little surprising to hear Berbatov admit to a bashful side when we caught up with him ahead of his involvement in the Legends of the North charity game at Old Trafford.

When we asked about his chant, he replied: “Well, I heard it but, to be honest, in my case, in every club I was, there was a song. In [Bayer] Leverkusen, in Spurs, in United, in Fulham. But, in my case, it’s going to sound strange probably, but I felt uncomfortable.

“I don’t know why. It made me feel when I was hearing it, please don’t sing it. I don’t know why but it makes me feel uncomfortable. In a way, it was good but I just want to play. I will do my job, I will entertain you guys but it was a bit, I don’t know, just out there, the spotlight, in a way that makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. It sounds crazy and strange but it’s how I was and I still am.

“I just want to play football. I played football when I was playing for United and then go home. I know I entertain the fans, like, for example, the Berba spin against West Ham, and then I’m going home all smiles. I did my job.”
