With Fulham’s new boss Rene Meulensteen claiming that he wouldn’t stand in the way of Dimitar Berbatov’s ambitions, the predictable rumours of a move back to White Hart Lane began to emerge over the weekend.
It had been said that the Bulgarian nearly re-joined on the final day of the 2012 summer transfer window but now, 18 months on, the speculation has started again.
Here’s what Meulensteen said about the situation,
“I will never stand in the way of people’s ambitions. He is an immense player that I think any manager would want in his team – especially me. He is an immense player, that’s for sure. Any manager in the world would like to have him in their team.”
The obvious question is would you take him back? The striker is 32 now and in a struggling Fulham side has managed 17 goals in 43 league appearances. He still knows how to take a penalty, as evidenced in Sunday’s win over Villa and his touch leading up to that spot kick shows that world class quality remains.
But is he good enough for Spurs? Does your heart rule your head when you ask yourself the question ‘would you welcome Dimitar Berbatov back at White Hart Lane’?
