Dimitar Berbatov enjoyed successful spells at Tottenham and Manchester United but he wasn’t around for when Jose Mourinho was in charge of the two sides.
And this is a source of disappointment for Berbatov, who revealed to talkSPORT 2 he’d have loved to have played under the Special One.

He was some years off crossing paths with Mourinho, however, having been at Spurs from 2006-08 before joining Man United, leaving the Red Devils in 2012.
Mourinho first took charge at Old Trafford in the summer of 2016 and later went to Spurs in November 2019, and he currently remains in charge of the Lilywhites.
But that hasn’t stopped the Bulgarian from wondering what might have been as he admitted to being ‘curious’ about how he’d have fared under Mourinho’s management.
However, Berbatov admits he may have had a ‘difficult time’ with Mourinho, as well as Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

“I would’ve like to have played under Jose Mourinho because I’m curious to see how I’d fit in,” Berbatov told talkSPORT 2.
“Of course, if I have a difficulty or a problem I’ll speak with the boss to see what the problem is and try to resolve it.
“In the end if it isn’t working out you’re looking for another position somewhere else.
“Could I play under Jurgen Klopp or Jose Mourinho with a defensive style of football? I’d probably have a difficult time playing under these managers.
“Jurgen Klopp tries to press all the time with his forward players and I wasn’t like that.

“Jose Mourinho sides try to defend behind the ball and it’s frustrating for attackers to defend behind the ball all the time – running, chasing for the ball… in my opinion this is not the job of the striker.
“The striker wants to express himself; the striker wants to go forward, try to attack as much as possible, save his strength for when the moment is right to attack in the space.
“But unfortunately football is sometimes not like this. Sometimes you need to swallow your ego and defend in the name of the team because in sport you need to sacrifice things from time to time.”
