Ryan Giggs' Brilliant Response To Berbatov After Winning The Premier League

Dimitar Berbatov had a pretty successful stint at Manchester United. He might not spring to mind in the same sense as Wayne Rooney, Eric Cantona or Ruud van Nistelrooy, but he is fondly remembered by many United fans.

The Bulgarian striker has been reminiscing about his time with the Red Devils on United's website, revealing what club legend Ryan Giggs said to him after he won his first Premier League title.

"My first year at the club, I won my first Premier League title," he 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!

"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."

No surprise from Giggs on that one.

The Welsh winger spent over two decades with United, picking up medal after medal under Sir Alex Ferguson's reign at the club.

Berbatov completed a £30.75m switch from Tottenham in 2008 and stayed at the club until 2012, making 108 appearances and scoring 48 times.
