Ex-Man Utd striker Dimitar Berbatov reveals Juventus, Fiorentina offers

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov admits he had offers to play in Italy during his career.

Berbatov has explained why he never chose to play in Serie A.

"I had offers from Fiorentina and Juventus, but after so many years in England I wanted to stay in England and not learn a new language, new training methods and style of football," he told ESPN.

“I'd already learned English from movies and talking to myself and I wanted to use that. I tell my daughter to speak English when she plays with her dolls. She speaks better English than me now.

“I could not say no to Martin Jol. London, England, Premier League, Martin Jol. Lovely."
