Pavlyuchenko gets nasty, Berbatov gets nice
Two men, same request, different outcomes
It’s been a week of mixed fortunes for Tottenham’s front line, old and new. Berbatov has sheepishly started his new life in Manchester, making an efficient if unspectacular start. After a red carpet night in honour of Giggsy, he arrived home, only to be pounced on by enthusiastic autograph hunters after a doodle. He kindly obliged (pictured).
Yet over in the icy land of Russia, rumours suggest that Pavlyuchenko has landed himself in hot water for being anything but obliging to a fan’s wants – he reportedly smashed up their expensive digital camera instead of posing for a picture. The fan, understandably, is upset.
A police spokesman insists that if what’s being said is true, Pav will have to cough up a “hefty fine.”
