"In January 2014 Falcao was injured and we had to look for another striker. We had few choices. Berbatov was one of them. Many had criticised our choice because he was near the end of his carreer. Dimitar though helped or team in crucial games and scored a lot".
Vasilyev mentioned that the 34-year-old striker will help the Greek team: "Berbatov is a great and very clever football player. He is a great professional and provides the team with confidence through his experience. Maybe some people think that he is near the end of his career because of his age but he is going to prove what he can do with PAOK".
About Berbatov's character: "He is calm. He doesn't talk too much but he is a player with positive personality".
