Misery, thy name is Berbatov

Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has been bestowed with the prestigious ‘Bulgarian Player of the Year’ award for the fourth consecutive year (thus equalling Barca legend Hristo Stoichkov ‘s record for successive wins) and for the seventh time in his career overall though he used his acceptance speech to plead with the country’s journalists to cease and desist voting for him, as he never wants

    its not as if he the award is as prestigious as the ballon d’or right? i mean in bulgaria there isnt anyone who comes close to matching berbatov’s class right? his closest rival is probably the 2 petrovs so understandably its hard for him to get excited over this. did he really ignore the homeless war orphans though?

  2. Chris says:

    Yep…almost certainly.

  3. Chris says:

    I heard he gave one of them a chinese burn

  4. chimpo says:

    you also omitted the fact that he strangled a basket of kittens… just for shits n giggles like

  5. Chris says:

    Berba is dead inside.

    What a retarded article…

  7. Tanya says:

    For some odd reason I find it hilarious how The Berba came off really as some arrogant prat filled with misery when it was a very selfless demand because even he now thinks that maybe some younger players deserve a chance. SEVEN is enough for one person.

    The real question is: What is that stuff on the front og his jersey?!?

    @Raybuck Luck

    It’s Vick’s Vapor Rub. Supposed to keep your airways cough-free while sauntering around the pitch. As footballers do.

    I’m a Bulgarian and that’s some dumb shit. I don’t know wtf you’ve seen or read. I’ve watched the ceremony directly. He was giving autographs to children while he was waiting to be pronounced. His speech was great – he honoured Stoichkov and called young people to remember the past, cause if you don’t there is no future, and finally he urged young Bulgarian players to show their potential. End of story.

  11. Kylie says:

    Berba is so modest, I wish more footballers were like that, bless him!

  12. Callan says:

    Actually Berba has always helped children through various Bulgarian charities. And the fact that he even showed up to accept his award tells you that he cares. Many award winners send the pre-recorded acceptance message or have their agent fetch the award.

    A golf ball has more personality than this lad. Fukkin hell could you imagine how depressing he’d be if he lived in Bulgaria and never made it at professional football!!!

    Hahaha chris chinese burn hahaha!

  15. Jimbo says:

    I think worst acceptance speech should go to Balotelli for the whole ‘Yes, only Messi is better than me, apart from that, I’M AMAZING! Meeee, meeee, meeee!’

    This is the gentlemanly act of a footballer that knows that bulgaria isn’t exactly the football capital of the world and wants to boost the self confidence of younger players. Fair enough he’s not the best player in the Premier League (or even the united squad) but he is improving!! all this proves is that he doesn’t consider himself to be a football god that should automatically get awards (unlike the arrogant c**t Bellendotelli!!!). The fact that he wants other people to be voted for shows genuine humility and its a pity more footballers don’t have that!!

    It sounds to me like he was actually embarrased by the award because he knows that he only got it because he is the most famous bulgarian footballer in the world and not because he is the best!!

    As for walking out of the Bulgarian national team, whatever reasons he had for doing that are his own business and f*ck all to do with anyone else! don’t remember people calling Scholes or shearer traitors when they retired (and lets face it they’d still do a better job than the shower of sh*te England has now because they play for pride not praise!!)

    It’s a typical English reaction to try and find fault with anyone that does something that might actually be a nice thing to do!!

    PEACE OUT MOFO’S
