Dimitar Berbatov has told of how Ryan Giggs reacted to the striker’s first Premier League medal.
Berbatov signed for Manchester United from Tottenham Hotspur in 2008 and won the league title twice, along with the League Cup, and scored 56 goals in 149 appearances for the club.
The Bulgarian international, who last played for Kerala Blasters in the 2017/18 season, wrote for Manutd.com about his experiences at Old Trafford.
One anecdote tells of what Giggs told Berbatov after winning the 2008/9 league, in his first season with the club.

“My first year at the club, I won my first Premier League title,” Berbatov said.
“I was just like… oh my God. Jumping inside.
“When I went home that night I jumped around for real because nobody could see me, with my medal, going around the house naked. I was so happy.
“But when I go in the dressing room after the game, I see Giggsy with his 110th medal or whatever, already saying: ‘Berbs, the next one is coming.’
“We won the league a few minutes ago and already it’s forgotten!
“I’m like… can I have five minutes, please? I’ve JUST won my first medal. You know, nothing special!”
Berbatov explained that it was the winning attitude that carried them to one trophy after another:
“You could see that for them it was almost like something normal. Probably for me it would be the same after that many medals, but in that dressing room it was always about the next goal, the next cup, the next title, the next Champions League.
“This is what winners do. It was unbelievable.”
