Dimitar Berbatov is the New Rafael van der VaartBy: The Offside | August 21st, 2008
(Pardon the mess on the photos, spilled some garbage on them this morning.)
This is one of today’s Shocking! News! Stories!. That’s Dimitar Berbatov at an airport signing a jersey. Guess what club it is…yup, you guessed it.
I wonder if this would’ve made the press were it any other jersey but Manchester United. (He’s been linked there, did you know that?) But it has and it’s quite a big deal because Dimitar does not play his home games at Old Trafford (yet). And it’s kind of disrespectful to sign the jersey when your current club is still paying your substantial paycheck knowing full well it’s anything but a random shirt for another team. Kind of like posing for wedding pictures with one woman while you’re engaged to someone else. Nothing good can come of it.
Now if Rafael van der Vaart (below) is any type of barometer for being a first rate jackass while begging for your move out, Dimitar will have to wait until next summer for his move…..to Chelsea.
