Dimitar Berbatov has called former Manchester United teammate Patrice Evra his “brother from another mother”.
The duo spent four seasons together at Old Trafford and developed a strong bond, which the Bulgarian fondly remembers.
When asked to name his all-time XI recently he didn’t hesitate to include the French international.
“My friend, my brother from another mother! Somehow he was always the first guy to congratulate me when I scored a goal,” he told Sky Sports.
“He was always so sincere when he celebrated my goals, I could see it in his face and that made me happy.
“Even for his small size he was always jumping and fighting big guys and playing against him was always difficult.
“He was the joker of the dressing room, he was always pranking people and putting the music up.”
Berbatov and Evra enjoyed a successful period with the Red Devils, winning two Premier League titles and two League Cups.
Berbatov, who joined from Tottenham in 2008, scored 56 goals across 149 appearances while producing 27 assists.
Not necessarily the first choice striker for Sir Alex Ferguson he would nonetheless become a fan favourite.
His most memorable moment was undoubtedly the five goals he scored against Blackburn in November 2010.
