Wigan boss Bruce 'almost' likens Tottenham's Berbatov to Cantona

Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce 'almost' likened Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov to his former Manchester United teammate Eric Cantona.

After Saturday's 1-1 draw, Bruce said: "He just makes it look so easy that you wonder whether he can do more.

"He reminds me of . . . top players in the way he links the play."

As he hesitated, just about everyone gathered around the Wigan manager was about to utter the name Eric Cantona for him.

Who else could the brilliant but brooding Berbatov bring to mind?

"Don't go there," replied Bruce with a smile. "I can see the headlines already."
