“I went back home to Bulgaria in the summer, I thought about things,” said Berbatov. “We wanted to win the title last year, we did our best but it ended up disappointing. I feel great now, I had a good pre-season. Physically I’m ready. I want it to be our season. The most important thing is for the team to be successful. We want to win every trophy and we want to entertain. When you come to play with the best you have to work hard to be on their level. When you make that step you start to grow up on and off the pitch. You realise what a great place it is to learn. It’s like a school for the young players to learn how to become the best. All I want to do now is play well, enjoy myself and score and make goals. Football is like art and my aim is to create beautiful things on the pitch. Our aim is to win the title back.”
