The Planet Football website ranked Bulgaria’s Dimitar Berbatov in second position out of all players to wear the No.9 shirt for United in the Premier League era.

The rankings feature the names of Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and others, with Andy Cole holding first position. Dimitar Berbatov played for Manchester United from 2008 until 2012, and has 56 goals from 149 matches to his name.

“A few players on this list could be described as enigmas, but perhaps none more so than Berbatov. The Bulgarian’s laissez–faire attitude could have been an awkward fit (….) but he thrived at Old Trafford, winning the Premier League’s Golden Boot in 2010-11 and helping fire the Red Devils to two Premier League titles,” Planet Football writes.
