The 31-year-old's game has never been about blistering pace or lightening reflexes, with creative ability and a sharp footballing brain having taken him this far.

There would appear to be no reason why the Bulgarian frontman could not compete at the top level for the foreseeable future, and that is precisely what he is looking to do.

He said: "I'm not a keeper, Ryan Giggs or Paolo Maldini, but I want to play until I am 40."

Berbatov has found a new lease of life at Fulham, with the former Tottenham forward having returned to the capital from Manchester United over the summer, and he has hinted that the Cottagers may not be his last club in the Premier League.

He added: "I want to play in England for several more years. I like England as a place. I like the mentality, culture and its football."

Berbatov has, however, revealed that he has no plans to step out of international retirement, having been away from the Bulgaria scene since May 2010.

He said: "I'm standing by the decision I made more than two years ago. My time has passed."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
