The Bulgarian national football team wants Berbatov to come out of retirement
Posted On May 10, 2015
It’s been over 4 years since Berbatov confirmed his intention to stop playing at the international stage and retire. The Bulgarian forward still continues to be a regular starter for As.Monaco but he does not perform for his country anymore as the 34 year old attacker wanted to focus the remaining years of his playing career by playing with his club, As.Monaco.
It has appeared to be a good decision for DimitarBerbatov as the player is one of the top goal-scorers of As.Monaco even at his 34 years of age. He still manages to find the back of the net and score goals, which is very impressive taking into consideration that he is one of the oldest players of the French club but is still able to compete against his younger teammates.
IvayloPetev is the head coach of the Bulgarian national football team and the manager voiced his desire to meet with DimitarBerbatov and try to persuade him to come out of his international retirement.
“I have the ambition to meet DimitarBerbatov and talk about him coming out of retirement. We’ll see what will happen.” Bulgaria’s IvatloPetev said during his first press conference after being selected as the new coach of the Bulgarian national side on December of 2014.
During the international playing career of DimitarBerbatov, he managed to score 48 goals in 79 appearances and the experienced forward is the all-time goal-scorer of Bulgaria. IvayloPetev would like to see the player score a few more goals for his country and help Bulgaria compete against other nations at the international stage.
Bulgaria could certainly use a player like DimitarBerbatov as the national side is currently attempting to qualify and get into the 2016 Euro’s which is going to be hosted by France but they will need to snatch a top spot of Group H but it’s not an easy task taking into consideration that Croatia and Italy are dominating the group.
The return of DimitarBerbatov can help out Bulgaria in their upcoming international fixtures.
