Former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov is known for his nonchalant finishes, and he has conjured up a truly magical goal.

The Bulgarian is currently on loan at AS Monaco from struggling Premier League Club Fulham FC.

For eight years the striker graced the Premier League, and this goal shows that he has no intention of slowing down aged 33. The forward, known for his impeccable technique and remarkable vision, has scored some beauties in his time: the exquisite bicycle kick against Liverpoolthe Bergkamp-esque juggle and chip in his Leverkusen days, and this is right up there with his best.

Berbatov found the ball at his feet bouncing in front of him, at an impossible angle, and where most would have crossed he instead, cool as can be, hoofed the ball over the head of the opposing goalkeeper and into the side netting. Although he made it look easy, one can only imagine the vision, technique and also sheer audacity to score like that.

Although Berbatov is often criticised for his poor work rate and hatred of tracking back, he is always a fan favourite at any club he plays for due to his skills as an entertainer.
