Bulgaria’s all-time record scorer has teamed up with Rene Meulensteen who worked with the 36-year-old at both Man United and Fulham.

And now he will be looking to forge a fierce strike partnership alongside former Leicester striker Iain Hume.

Marshalling the Kerala Blasters’ defence is Berbatov’s former team-mate Wes Brown.

Kerala, who are owned by cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, announced the signing on Twitter with a compilation video of Berbatov’s illusive career.

Alongside the video they included the caption: “Golden touch, turns like a dream & deadly finish.

“The Bulgarian Hitman is set to take ISL by storm.”

Berbatov moved to the Premier League in 2006 when he joined Tottenham from Bayer Leverkusen.
