Berbatov May Retire From International Football

dimitar-berbatovManchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov may retire from the Bulgarian national team, amidst criticism of his effort.

Bulgarian Football Union president Yordan Letchkov called out numerous players, including Berbatov, for a lack of effort last month.

Berbatov pulled out of Wednesday’s 6-1 friendly defeat against Serbia after 30 minutes with an injury.  A commentator on Bulgarian TV then repeated Letchkov’s allegation and questioned Berbatov’s value to the national team.

Emil Dancev, Berbatov’s agent, then called the television broadcaster at half-time angrily criticizing the comments and implying that Berbatov might refuse to play.

Bulgarian manager Plamen Markov termed Berbatov’s injury a “slight injury,” but later confirmed that Manchester United’s medical staff expected him out for a week to ten days.

The 27-year-old has 41 goals in 64 appearances for his national side.
