Former Tottenham and Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbabtov has revealed that talks between him and Sunderland boss David Moyes broke down.
Speaking to Sky Sports’ “Goals on Sunday”, the 36 year-old Bulgarian explained how he has talks with a few clubs since becoming a free agent in the summer.
“I want to play and to be honest I had a couple of conversations with managers, even the Sunderland one, but in the end nothing happened.”
The striker who scored 49 goals in 108 games for United admitted he was still interested in a move to Sunderland and the Premier League.
“At this stage of my life it’s only about football now. Just to play a little bit more, one more game or one more year.”
“The Premier League is the place every player wants to come and play. When you have been a part of it for so long, as I have been, and you score goals and win championships, it’s a feeling you want to go back and do again.”
Berbatov netted 95 times in 229 Premier League games during his time with Tottenham, Manchester United and Fulham.
Would have Berbatov have helped Sunderland have a better chance of avoiding the drop?
Is he past it?
