Berbatov slams United door
12 Jul 2007 - 11:19:25
Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov has slammed the door shut on a summer move to Manchester United and insists that he was overpriced at £11million a year ago.
The 26-year-old Bulgaria frontman joined Spurs last summer from Bayer Leverkusen and scored 23 times in 49 last season for Martin Jol's side.
That ignited talk of interest from the Red Devils, but Berbatov is in no hurry to leave White Hart Lane.
He told The Sun: "With regards to the whole Manchester United business, I just have to say that I'm very happy at Spurs.
"Even more importantly, I recognise that Tottenham has given me everything in order to make my time in the Premier League a success and I feel grateful to them. So I'm happy where I am.
"Last summer when Spurs told me they were willing to pay £11million for me, I asked them if they were off their heads.
"Now the word seems to be that my value is £40million and that's simply an abnormal sum of money.
"The paradox is that I scored more goals and played even better when I was with Leverkusen, but no way was I valued this highly.
"The truth is everyone in the world of English football seems to look at things quite differently to what I am used to."
