Berbatov sets himself goal target

Berbatov has scored 31 goals in 50 games for Bulgaria
Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov has given himself a goalscoring target of 15 to 20 goals in his first season in the Premier League.

Bulgarian Berbatov joined Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen for 10.9m in May.

"It will be good if I can score 15 or even 20 goals next season," Berbatov, 25, told Bulgarian radio Gong.

"It was difficult during the first two pre-season matches but I received a welcome reception at Spurs and I don't think I'll have a problem to adapt."

Berbatov, who scored 69 goals in 154 matches during his five years in the Bundesliga as well as 31 goals in 50 games for Bulgaria, has already been aware of Spurs' rivalry with Arsenal.

"I'll be happy to score against Arsenal," said Berbatov.

"It's not difficult to understand that they are our bitter rivals, everybody in the club is talking about it."

The Bulgarian forward added: "Little by little I'm coming into my best form. Everything is new for me, even the training sessions are different.

"But training is varied and it makes it pleasant."
