Fulham have announced via their official website the capture of Dimitar Berbatov from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee. The deal represents an enourmous coup for the club, beating Juventus and Fiorentina to the signature who only 15 months ago won the Golden Boot for top scorer in the Premier League.
Quotes from Berbatov who is delighted to complete the move:
I’m delighted to have signed for Fulham and I look forward to playing under Martin Jol once again. As soon as I was aware of Fulham’s interest my decision to join was an easy one to make. I’m impressed with the set up here and the people have made me feel welcome. There is a close and personal feel around the Club and I can’t wait to get started.
Jol recognises this is a fantastic purchase by the club:
Dimitar is a player I’ve always admired. He did well for me at Spurs and I’m sure that he will do well here at Fulham. He’s a player of great quality and technical ability who will give me the attacking option I’ve been looking for. When he’s not scoring goals, his ingenuity often leads chances being created for his teammates and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to convince him to come to us, as there was a lot of attention from other clubs.
