Berbatov was a genius in his own right. His ability with the ball was limitless and I cannot stress how technically gifted he was.

Watching him was like watching Federer in a mid Grand Slam, both of them artists with the 'ball' and never needing to rush their feet and choosing not to, in order to stick with the core principle of how they prefer to play.

Calling Berba lazy is just simplifying it as yes he could have had better habits and certainly played harder but that was who and how he was and in his own alternate way made him the player he came to be.

I do remember this one particular game for United where he was forced to put the afterburners was amongst the best performances of his life, similar to Zlatan when he is angry, to which was not often enough.

Made me think of how much more effective he could have been if the Bulgarian and Zlatan himself always carried that mentality.

Either way a great career no doubt and will be remembered very fondly by purists once his memory ages well and not just of what he could have been, but what he was itself.

He will be missed.

David Villa announces retirement at the end of the current season

Probably Spain's last ever great strikers left
