I presume it is fair to say Dimitar Berbatov isn’t popular in Italy after being slammed for the second time in 2 days, this time by Juvetus manager Massimo Carrera.

Yesterday Fiorentina released an angry statement berating the Bulgarian for his conduct during transfer negotiation between them and Manchester United, ¬†and although they also took aim at Juventus who it appeared had hijacked the Florence club’s move, Juventus would suffer the same fate as he snubbed both clubs to sign for west London outfit Fulham.

After pulling a no show in Turin, stand-in Juventus coach Massimo Carrera spoke out against Berbatov labelling him ‘unreliable’:

“It’s the first time I have seen a situation like that.

“Seeing what happened, perhaps it is better that he did not join us as we are talking about an unreliable player.”

  1. United says:

    Well i must agree with both the teams. He or his agent should have had the decency to inform the clubs that he wont be joining them instead of the no-show.

      Excuse me,

      Siding with Juventus is a bit rich. Not only is their recent and not so recent history rather tainted, they, very early set out to unsettle Paul Pogba. I feel sorry for Pogba because the fans of Juventus are one of the most racist and boy he will cop it.

      To top it off Juventus attempted to ‘cut in’ on a fellow Italian team Fiorentina, scuttling any chance Berbatov would have had.

      Eventually it came down to ‘family’ and Berba’s decision in listening to his families wishes is admirable.

      This player did not get a go at United, S.A.F says Berba’s style didn’t fit United’s style of play, so being an astutre manager, “Why did he pay well over the odds to Spurs and bend to Levi’s extortion?

      Berbatov has achieved much despite VERY limited opportunities to shine and I for one admire the man, the footballer. He even retired from International football so he could dedicate more to United’s cause.

      Good luck at Fulham Berba. I hope you get plenty of playing time.

    Ever thought that maybe it was UTD agreeing to the fees and arranging appts for the player, in an attempt to force him out?

    I think Berba in some part got his way with a move to Fulham. Prob for a lower fee than that which was on offer from elsewhere.

    I was surprise he turned down Juventus and Champions League football for Fulham. I can only imagine he was offered better terms by Fulham, but his agent did say Berbatov wanted to move abroad at the beginning of the summer. I felt sorry for Fiorentina because they paid for his flights and where waiting for him at the airport. It doesn’t matter know and I wish Berbatov luck at Fulham.

    • Bred Red says:

      Paid for his flights!

      Indeed a freebie flight to Italy is of little, if any, consequence and at the end of the day,
      of little import if any.

      Berba doesn’t need Champion’s League football, he’s already played numerous times in that tournament and seen success in the E.P.L.

      Good luck at Fulham Berba.
