Berbatov=Bulgaria's Footballer of the Year

Berbatov Distinguished As Bulgaria's Top Footballer

12/27/2002. Bayer Leverkusen striker Dimitar Berbatov has been bestowed the honour of having been voted Bulgaria's Footballer of the Year for 2002.

The 21-year-old received recognition for having played heavy hand in Bayer's narrowly-failed triple assault on the Champions League (beaten finalists), Bundesliga (second-place) and German Cup (beaten finalists).

He especially provided for headlines in his motherland when he both setup and scored a goal in Bulgaria's 2-0 win over Croatia in an important Euro 2004 qualifier from several months ago.


My heart = INTER...No Matter Win or Lose...

Zanetti : I still remember my first day at Inter. I arrived with a plastic bag with my boots inside and I crossed the crowd of fans who were asking who I was. That's where it all started.....

This year as usual the contestants were mostly from the NT.I suppose he won because of his participation in the CL last year
My favorites were the Petrovs(Martin and Stilian)

Something intersting around Berbatov is that he is going to be the fate man of the first baby born in Bulgaria on the first day of the new year.

Berbatov I guess deserved the honours. He reached CL final with leverkusen, came second in the Bundesleague and scored some of teh most vital goals for the NT. I personally, prefer Stilian, no question. Even Balakov said his N1 was Stan. My guess, is that of Zdravkov goes to Arsenal and gets some games there or later on in another EPL club and the NT qualifies then it will be bewtween Stan and Zdavkov next year. Stilian is destained to be NT leader for the next years ...
