The former Spurs coach revealed to the Observer: "I loved Berbatov.
"He was my player. Berba came to me after the first two defeats this season and said: 'Boss I want to achieve something. I'm not worse than Eto'o or Rooney or Tevez.' And he's right. But, I said to him, 'You have to make the difference and win us prizes. You need to be more consistent in your play.'
"Last year he scored 12 in the league and with his ability he could score 20."
