Berbat Off

Footballers! (Berbatov specifically). Please don't try and become actors!

Uh oh. Watch out everyone. There's a footballer with thespian aspirations on the loose.

Dimitar Berbatov, Bulgarian Footballer of the Year, Manchester United striker, childhood Newcastle supporter, has supposedly announced in an interview with Elle that he is interested in becoming an actor. But we should resist full-blown panic. Of the roles he has already been offered, the thoughtful Berbatov sighs: "I read, I wonder, but forgo for now." The revelation comes from Bulgarian magazine Bliasak. Warning: this article is sorely let down by Google's attempts at translation.
