David James' Kerala Blasters failed to secure a top-four finish and make the ISL playoffs this season.

Kerala Blasters have extended the contract of David James, announcing him as head coach till the 2020-21 season of the Indian Super League (ISL), over a weekend where former Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov's criticism of him in a social media post garnered as much attention as Kerala's inability to finish in the top four and make the ISL playoffs.

Berbatov, who made nine appearances and scored just one goal for Kerala in an injury-ridden ISL season for Kerala, posted a selfie from inside...

Iceman Berbatov melts in Kochi heat

It's not hard to spot Dimitar Berbatov in a crowd, even from afar. If his tall and lanky figure doesn't give him away, the confident demeanour and nonchalant ball control most certainly do.

It wouldn't be Berbatov any other way. He has always played football on his pace, and on his terms.

Forget about Champions League finals and title-deciding Premier League games; Berbatov is unfazed even by glitzy ISL opening ceremonies graced by Indian darlings Sachin Tendulkar, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and...

Dimitar Berbatov re-enacts 'The Godfather' with help of his daughter

Francis Ford Coppola's classic "The Godfather" trilogy has been a lifelong obsession for Dimitar Berbatov, who used the iconic movies to learn English as a young boy growing up in Bulgaria.

So it's perhaps not surprising that the 36-year-old striker chose to re-enact a scene from the cinematic masterpiece to help promote his upcoming charity match.

The little vignette also features an impressive supporting performance from Berbatov's 7-year-old daughter, Dea, who approaches "Don Dimitore" in search...
