Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov fancies a movie career once he hangs up the boots.

Berbatov is currently impressing in France with AS Monaco.

"I am a huge movie buff and if I stop with the football, I will definitely be in a movie. I think I would be a good actor," he told Metro magazine.

Berbatov could follow United legend Eric Cantona in becoming an actor, but he says: "Being compared with Éric Cantona is not fair, because he was a great player for Manchester United. The goals he scored, the way he turned up his collar - he was really cool."
