Spurs boss Jol: Berbatov can be legend

Tottenham boss Martin Jol says Dimitar Berbatov can become a White Hart Lane legend.

"Klinsmann was here in '98 and they were almost relegated. So what is a legend?" Jol said.

"Clive Allen scored 49 in a season. There is still a lot to improve with the team and with Dimitar, he can score 30 or 35 goals in all competitions. There is a lot more to come because he's such a good finisher."

Even Glenn Hoddle has spoken of how he admires Berbatov, praise from the man regarded as Spurs' most elegant player.

Other managers have been quick to praise the Bulgarian too but Jol tries not to discuss the striker with his counterparts.

He added: "I don't want to talk about it with them because maybe they'd agree. I tell them he's lazy!"
