The Egyptian striker Ahmed Mido gave a curious interview where he commented on his match for a place with Dimitar Berbatov.
They were together for a season in Tottenham, Berbatov's first year at the club.
Then came the Bulgarian with great expectations. Ahmed Medo's Rome rent was over, and although he had a strong season, Spurs did not renew his contract.
"I wanted to stay in Tottenham, but the team bought Berbatov.
However, in the first three matches he was the weakest on the plan. Nothing happened to him. After the three games Martin Jol called me and said he made a mistake.
This Berbatov is not what I expected, please come back.
I came back and started a title in the next match against Manchester United, Berbatov was a reserve.
Martin Jol believed that the Bulgarian would never go to England, but suddenly changed something. He started playing as Cruyff. He was an incredible, completely different player.
Eventually, I won the title, I could not resist him. The things he did were incredible. His first touch and how the attacks ended as if they were from another planet.
Otherwise, he was a weird guy. He came to the base and carried a knife and fork away from home. He did not use them in the dining room.
He brought a coat and long leather shoes, spent a terrible time in front of the mirror and loose his hair.
He was also a photographer. He went out to take some pictures, there was a lot of spacen, said mido
