Bulgarian footbal player Dimitar Berbatov received another recognition. The central striker was ranked in the prestigious ninth place in the Bild newspaper's ranking of Bayer (Leverkusen)'s Best Footballer of All Time. He played for the German club from 2001 to 2006.

"The Bulgarian was an aesthete. His goals - the striker scored a total of 91 for Bayer - were works of art. After the end of Ulf Kirsten's career, he was rightly allowed to take his number 9," the text about Berbatov reads.

However, Dimitar Berbatov does not find a place in Bayer (Leverkusen)'s ideal squad.
