Story About Dimitar Berbatov In The Spurs Media Cafe Is Perfect
Dimitar Berbatov may have hung up his boots 18 months ago but the former Spurs striker proved on Saturday afternoon that he's still very much the same person.
The Spurs fan favourite was in attendance on Saturday as his former club lost 1-0 to Premier League leaders Liverpool to leave Jose Mourinho's team nine points behind the top four.
Whilst tension was rising ahead of kick off Berbatov was busy being his relaxed self in the press cafe. football.london correspondent Alasdair Gold took to Twitter to tell the story of Berba managing to get his hands on some food despite a lack of accreditation.
With his cool as a cucumber attitude on the pitch you can well imagine the Bulgarian stuffing his face right in front of the catering manager as she got more and more annoyed.
Ahead of this weekend's game Berba called for his former club, and specifically manager Jose Mourinho, to really 'go for it' in the transfer window, "Now that the transfer window is open there are questions about what they will do, especially with some of the injuries they have," the former Manchester United striker told Betfair.
"It was another blow to hear that Moussa Sissoko will be out for a while, he's been great for Spurs and with Kane, Ndombele and Lloris also injured, they have some big problems that they need to attend to.
"How are they going to fix things - the transfer window is open, are they going to buy someone or are they going to continue with the squad they have. I'm curious to see what happens, but if there is someone out there in the market who can fill the gaps they should go for it, definitely."
Mourinho could well be taking the 38-year-old's advice with reports that Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes could join the north London club on loan, beating rivals West Ham to the deal.
Replacing Harry Kane whilst the England striker is out injured could be trickier with the potential signing of AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek still up in the air.
Will Spurs sign anyone this window?
