Berbatov: Evra convinced me about Monaco move

Dimitar Berbatov admits speaking with former Manchester United teammate Patrice Evra about AS Monaco before making his move.

Dimitar Berbatov admits speaking with former Manchester United teammate Patrice Evra about AS Monaco before making his move.

The former Fulham striker signed for ASM, where Evra once played, on deadline day last week.

He said: "I was looking for something new. When Monaco contacted me, I spoke about it with Patrice Evra, one of my very good friends, and he said good things about the team. I know Ricardo Carvalho - I played against him in England - so I don't feel like a new player.

"In fact, it was easy for me to chose. It is a great team and I know the coach (Claudio Ranieri) who worked in England. It is a new adventure."
