Dimitar not happy
Former Portsmouth and England goalkeeper David James has hit back at Dimitar Berbatov who questioned his management at Kerala Blasters.
The former Spurs and Manchester United forward slammed James after the Indian season finished.
Posting on Instagram from a plane, the player posted a selfie with some very interesting hashtags.
‘#WorstWannaBeCoachEver’ was one of them, while ‘#worsttacticaladvice’ was also used.
The biggest one was questioning James’ tactics at Blasters ‘#ChipTheBallToStrikersChestAndWeTakeItFromThere/WTF/WhoPlaysLikeThis’.

James hits back
Safe to say, David James was not happy with that and he has finally hit back at Berbatov’s comments.
“Every fan needs to know that every player on that field wants to play for Kerala Blasters. They are not just visiting India for a nice holiday or a trip,” he explained.
“I did not recruit either of them (Berbatov and Brown). That (Berbatov’s complaints) isn’t down to me.
“The reasons for any individual coming, the policy from now on will be to understand why they are coming.
“With Wes Brown, I don’t think he missed a minute for me. He was on three bookings for four or five games and still didn’t miss a game.
“He has been a true professional in every aspect. Even in training, he has been fantastic.
“As far as Dimitar is concerned, I know why he came here. I didn’t have a problem with that because I didn’t recruit him.
“I understand how he left, that’s up to him. I came in halfway through the season. We made some changes in the January transfer window.”
