Kerala Blasters sign former Man United footballer Dimitar Berbatov

Indian Super League side Kerala Blasters have signed former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov.

The transfer has been announced by the Indian club in a tweet which read: “Golden touch, turns like a dream & a deadly finish. The Bulgarian hitman is set to take ISL by storm.”

The Bulgarian became a free agent after leaving the Greek side PAOK Salonika in June 2016.

In Kerala Blasters, Berbatov will link up with former United team-mate Wes Brown and head coach Rene Meulensteen, who was Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant at Old Trafford between 2007 and 2013.

Last week, the Indian outfit also signed former Manchester United defender Wes Brown ahead of the 2017-18 season.
