Dimitar Berbatov has named a Man City player in his dream five-a-side team

Handy side, to be fair


Dimitar Berbatov is one of those players who achieved cult status wherever he went.

He’s the forward with one of the best first-touches in the game, he scored a hat-trick against Liverpool and he never once broke out of a jog in the Premier League.

But the blasé Bulgarian would thrill the fans and frustrate Premier League managers in equal measure before leaving England for Monaco.

Berbatov is now killing balls stone dead for PAOK in Greece and was asked to name his dream five-a-side team.

Having said that, we never look kindly upon a player including himself but Berbatov does strike us as a bit of a portrait-of-myself-above-the-bed kind of fellow so it was to be expected.

More surprising, perhaps, is the decision not to include any of his former Man United team-mates, instead sticking the knife in by selecting Vincent Kompany, the captain of rivals City.
