Former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov has announced his retirement from football.
The Bulgarian had a successful career at club level, turning out for United, Spurs and Fulham in the English Premier Legue.
Berbatov has however been without a club since leaving Indian Super League side Kerala Blasters last year, and moved to clarify his situation.
He announced his retirement with a social media post on his Instagram, which included footage of an overhead goal he scored in a 3-2 win over Liverpool nine years ago.
"I did it my way!
On this special day today, if you don't know why, check the story, I decide to share this with you, which I was preparing to post a while ago, but didn't... I don't know why...
"I know some of you already thought that I retired, and now maybe you are like WTF Berbs we know that you don't play, but I did try to find something (a club) last year. Didn't happen.
"So, someone told me I need to say something, and seeing that people were asking me, especially back home, I need to give a farewell message! So, here it is!
My last game was more than one year ago, so I think its the right time now to stop and its long overdue!
"Although when I think about it, its never The End, because I will stay in the game in one way or another, the time has come to say that after almost 20 years playing football I am stopping with my professional ACTIVE football career!
"I will miss it! I will f***ing miss it! Everything! The games, trainings, the goals, preparations, the pressure, my teammates... the roar of the fans when I scored another banger.
Berbatov made 229 appearances across spells at Spurs, United and Fulham, scoring 94 goals and winning the Golden Boot in the 2010/11 season.
He won two Premier League titles at United and also featured for CSKA Sofia, Bayer Leverkusen, Monaco and Greek side PAOK.
