The agent of Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov admits he was upset when good friend was ignored by the Londoners and signed for Manchester City in August.

Berbatov's agent Emil Dantchev said: "A lot of people have heard the story about Dimitar being upset about the club not signing Petrov.

"All I can say is that they have always wanted to play together again, but while Dimitar may have wanted Martin to join him at Tottenham, players don't get a say in what happens.

"They have been good friends for eight years since they were together briefly for CSKA Sofia. They got on well and Martin has always said Dimitar is his best friend. They would score a lot of goals if they played together, they have proved that for the national team.

"But even though they may not be together in Tottenham or Manchester City, they have made plans to play together in the future. They are looking towards the end of their careers and being reunited at CSKA before they quit the game."
