Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov says he plans to carry on playing until he is 40, after an impressive start to the season at Craven Cottage.

The 31-year-old has scored three Premier League goals in five appearances for Martin Jol’s side this season, including one last time out in the 3-3 draw against Reading.

The west London club are the third Premier League side Berbatov has represented after Tottenham and Manchester United, and the Bulgarian has not ruled out joining another English team when his time at Craven Cottage comes to an end.

“I’m not a keeper, Ryan Giggs or Paolo Maldini, but I want to play until I am 40,” Berbatov told reporters.

“I want to play in England for several more years. I like England as a place. I like the mentality, culture and its football.”

When asked if Fulham would be his last club, the former Tottenham player replied: “I really don’t know.”

However, one thing Berbatov is sure about is that he will not return to international football with Bulgaria, insisting that his time has passed.

“I’m standing by the decision I made more than two years ago. My time has passed,” he said.
