Fiorentina's sporting director, Daniel Prade, speaking to Radio Blu, fumed: "I'm glad that he did not arrive. We will request to his agent the money we paid for their flight to come to Florence, 100%."
Fiorentina had paid for Berbatov and his agent to fly to Florence to speak to them about a transfer, but ended up jilted when the former Manchester United striker decided to have a word with Juventus, before eventually settling on Fulham.
At the time, the club issued a statement saying: "The player embarked, in the company of his agent and with tickets paid by Fiorentina, on a direct flight to Florence. But the player never arrived in Florence.
"[This was] owing to the reckless and arrogant actions of other clubs which have nothing to do with the values of decency, fair play and ethics of the sport and which go beyond the limits of fairness. As for the player, notwithstanding his characteristics and technical merit, at this point we are happy that he did not come to Fiorentina. He did not deserve our city and our shirt and the values it represents."
It's probably not going to be long before Berbatov wakes up next to a horse's head. Pay up, Dimi, for your own sake.
