Dimitar Berbatov joined Monaco in loan during the January transfer window and said that it was his former team mate, Patrice Evra, who convinced him to go.
“I spoke about it with Evra, he really told me a lot of good about this team,” said Berbatov. “Not everyone comes to the stadium, but the team is in second place and for the moment is achieving its objective of qualifying for the Champions League. I knew Ricardo Carvalho, whom I played against in England, and I don’t feel like a new player.”
Evra spent three and a half seasons in Monaco where manager Didier Deschamps moved his position from left wing to left back.
