Dimitar Berbatov has revealed that his exorcist uncle warned him not to join Manchester United - because of their "unGodly nickname".

The ex-Tottenham Hotspur striker told The Sun: "He is a priest and exorcist back home in Bulgaria - a powerful man who drives out demons and bad spirits.

"When I moved to United he had a problem with their nickname.

"As a godly man, he does not like the name Red Devils."

But now the same uncle has come to be thankful that his nephew ditched White Hart Lane for Old Trafford.

Berbatov added: "He has told me that his church has grown a lot bigger.

"People are football crazy in Bulgaria and if his church is more full as I now play for Manchester United, then that is great.

"It doesn't matter what gets them to church as long as they get there to learn from him."
