A story has emerged about Dimitar Berbatov that proves that, four months on from his retirement, he still remains a rebel.

The Bulgarian forward, formerly of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, attended Spurs’ 1-0 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday that left Jose Mourinho’s side chasing a Premier League top four spot.

Berbatov earned a reputation as one of the most relaxed, carefree players in the game and that approach remains with him in his post-playing days.

football.london’s Alasdair Gold has shared a story of the 38-year-old trying to get his hands on some food 10 minutes before kick-off - and causing chaos in the Spurs media cafe.

Gold wrote: “Dimitar Berbatov still very much a rebel.

“He came into the media cafe at Spurs about 10 minutes before kick off, looking for food.

“Grabbed a roll, but the catering manager came over and asked him where his pre-match meal voucher was (all media get given them).

“While his colleague argued his case, having taken one himself, explaining who the Bulgarian was, Berbatov casually buttered his roll, stuffed the whole thing into his mouth and stood in front of the woman with it hanging half out as if to say 'what you going to do about it now?'

“This sent the catering manager to a new level of outrage at this Bulgarian and his devil may care attitude.

“While she raged, Berbatov simply smiled with buttered roll still hanging out of his mouth before walking out of the room.

“Dimitar Berbatov - doing what he wants since 1981.”

Excellent.

Just picture Berbatov in the media cafe with a butter roll hanging out of his mouth, while Spurs’ catering manager rages at him.

Spurs could do with a striker with Berbatov’s talent now are losing Harry Kane to a hamstring injury for three months.

Defeat to Liverpool leaves the north London side nine points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and their challenge of catching up is considerably more difficult without Kane.

Give Berba a call, Jose.
