In India: Berbatov is a joy for the eye
In the history of Bulgaria’s national team Dimitar Berbatov did not score a goal in his debut match for Kerala Blastars, but he did not know how to play in India. Berba’s team took a point from champions Atletico de Kolkata, with several tens of thousands of spectators looking at the 0-0 draw at the start of the new championship.
“Looking at Berbatov is a real delight,” they wrote from the Indian Super League on their official Twitter profile as a commentary to a report on the debut match for the 2017/2018 season.
The 36-year-old Bulgarian played in a different role from his usual role, relying heavily on organizing the game of his team from a lower position rather than looking for the goals in front of the opposing door. Berba had the chance to bring Kerala’s three points in the added time, but his head shot was saved.
The next meeting of Blastars and Berbatov is on November 24th with Jamshedpur.
