North London’s former “favourite” son was at it again this weekend, poking his verbal stick into the bear cage hoping for a reaction from the Tottenham lot. He reckons the club’s new look is worthless without a certain Bulgarian striker. Is he right?
For 12 months, Mido has barely been able to kick a football. On Saturday night, fitness and optimism restored, he could not resist sticking the boot into his old club.
‘I don’t think Berbatov’s head is there anymore,’ he said. ‘It is not with Spurs and I think he is looking for a move.
‘I think he is a very important player for the club. You can see Spurs without Berbatov are a different team. Without Keane as well they are a different team.
‘They are huge players. It will be very difficult to replace Berbatov. He is a class player. He is not affected by anything around him. It was the same with Keano. He is one of the best players I have ever played with. Losing them I think will be difficult for Spurs.’ (Daily Mail)
Tottenham’s performance against Boro over the weekend was forgettable at best. If anything, the club’s new look was nearly non-existent. With Berbatov currently daydreaming about a move to Manchester United, and the offense sputtering out of the gates, many Tottenham supporters have to be wondering where the team goes from here. Should they be worried?
Is Mido’s comment about the club just his way of sticking it to his former employer after a massive opening day win? Or is he really speaking the truth?
