On this special day today, / if you don't know why, check the story 😁/ i decide to share this with you, which i was preparing to post a while ago, but didn't… I don't know why… I know some of you already thought that i retired, and now maybe you are like WTF Berbs we know that you don't play, but i did try to find something last year.. Didn't happened 😂🤦🏻♂ So, someone told me i need to say something, and seeing that people where asking me, especially back home, i need to give a farewell message! So, here it is! My last game was more then one year ago, so i think its the right time now to stop and its long overdue! Although when i think about it, its never The End, because i will stay in the game in one way or another, the time has come to say that after almost 20 years playing football i am stoping with my proffesional ACTIVE football career! I will miss it! I will fucking miss it! Everything! The games, trainings, the goals, preparations, the presure, my teammates… the roar of the fans when i scored another banger 😂😎 I was blessed and work hard to have the oportunity to play with one of the best ever and against some of the best ever! And coming from small country this makes it even more special for me! I had my highs and of course some lows in my career, won my fair share of trophies, score some goals along the way as well! I played the way i wanna play, and i scored the goals i wanted to score! Thank you to all the people who helped me develope, and became the player i always wanted to be! Thank you to all my former teams my teammates and my coaches and staff! It was a pleasure! I know at times i was not easy to work with, but i always gave my everything for the teams i played for! I hope you all have enjoyed my game, and everything i gave to entertain you on the pitch! 👊🏻 Damn it, i will miss all of this, peopleee, because i love football so much… But i am sure you will miss me as well 😁 Thank you! 🙏🏻 DB9

Berbatov had been without a club since leaving Indian Super League side Kerala Blasters last year, meaning his retirement was expected.

The former striker first arrived in England in 2006 when he joined Tottenham from Bayer Leverkusen and signed for Manchester United in 2008 and Fulham in 2012.

In total, he scored 94 Premier League goals in 229 appearances and the 38-year-old uploaded a video of his overhead kick for United against Liverpool nine years ago to Instagram, before posting a longer statement.

“My last game was more then one year ago, so i think its the right time now to stop and its long overdue,” he wrote.

“Although when i think about it, its never The End, because i will stay in the game in one way or another, the time has come to say that after almost 20 years playing football i am stooping with my professional ACTIVE football career!

“I will miss it! I will f****** miss it! Everything! The games, trainings, the goals, preparations, the pressure, my teammates… the roar of the fans when i scored another banger.

“I was blessed and work hard to have the opportunity to play with one of the best ever and against some of the best ever!

“And coming from small country this makes it even more special for me! I had my highs and of course some lows in my career, won my fair share of trophies, score some goals along the way as well! I played the way i wanna play, and i scored the goals i wanted to score!

“Thank you to all the people who helped me develop, and became the player i always wanted to be!

“Thank you to all my former teams my teammates and my coaches and staff! It was a pleasure! I know at times i was not easy to work with, but i always gave my everything for the teams i played for!”

Berbatov’s most successful spell came at United, who paid Spurs £30m – a deal that caused Sir Alex Ferguson to say was more painful than his hip operation.

There, he helped to win two Premier League titles and League Cup. His 48 goals for Bulgaria make him his country’s joint all-time leading scorer alongside Hristo Bonev.

As well as his eight-year stay in England, Berbatov also played for Monaco and PAOK having began with CSKA Sofia.
