Signing for a massive transfer fee of over GBP30 million Dimitar Berbatov became the sixth most expensive player in football history. His debut season in England for Spurs finished as Spurs' top scorer, with 23 goals in all competitions. He quickly became a fans' favourite and followed in the footsteps of former White Hart Lane legends. Despite inspiring his teammates to a wonderful Carling Cup triumph over Chelsea at the new Wembley, Berbatov's thirst for success saw him move to Manchester United in September 2008 and wearing the number 9 shirt as previosuly worn by Louis Saha. He marked his debut by scoring two goals for Manchester United in their 3-0 win away to Aalborg BK in the Champions League. His success continued as he scored the winning goal to secure a 1-0 away win over Bolton Wanderers, bringing United to the top of the Premier League table for the first time in the season in 2009. Deadly Dimitar is an in-depth look at the life and career of Bulgaria's five-time Footballer of the Year and favourite sporting son - and one of the biggest natural talents in English football.
