What Manchester United are missing right now is probably a bunch of players that stepped out to play for the badge and wore their hearts on the sleeve. A fine example belonging to such a lot was the talented and lazily brilliant, Dimitar Berbatov.
He was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson, and he brought not only goals and tricks, but also coolness and a sense of arrogance and excellence in the attacking line-up.
The Bulgarian recently spoke to the media, and his one particular statement has given the United fans a hit of happy nostalgia.

Berbatov recently mentioned that when he left Spurs at that time, he only had one destination in mind. Robinho had penned his arrival in the blue half of Manchester the same day, and when Berba’s agent told him that there might be other clubs paying more money, his reply was simply (via fourfourtwo) : ‘F*ck off, we’re going to Man United’.
The forward claimed that leaving White Hart Lane was a tough call and it made him a little uneasy, but all he was doing was fulfilling his dream.
To add to this, he said: “In my case it was me simply following my path, because ever since I was a small boy, I’d always imagined playing for the biggest club in the world.”
He came, he saw, he conquered, and boy did he win. Manchester United might become the best team in England again, they might get the best players in the world once more, but never will they find a player like Dimitar Berbatov.
