'Thank you so much for the reception, it's unbelievable; I didn't expect something like this, I'm just a simple person who plays football,' said Berbatov, who came on to the pitch wearing a PAOK shirt with No 10 on it.
He added: 'My father was born just 15 kilometers from the border (with Greece) so in some way we are like brothers, and as you always have to fight for your brother, I will fight for you.




The 34-year-old decided to join the Greek outfit despite being linked with a move back to the Premier League
Dimitar Berbatov was treated to a hero's welcome on Thursday as 10,000 jubilant PAOK Salonika fans turned up to greet the club's new signing at their Toumba Stadium.
The 34-year-old was unveiled to the media after joining the Super League club having been released by Ligue 1 side Monaco in the close season.
He is the highest-profile signing in the club's history after agreeing a two-year deal.



The former Bulgaria striker, who is his country's all-time leading goalscorer, joined Monaco in 2014 from Fulham and helped the French side reach the Champions League quarter-finals in April.
The former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur forward scored nine times in 37 appearances last season as Monaco finished third in the French league.
PAOK finished third in the Super League last season after fading in the second half of the campaign following a strong start, which had them dreaming of a first league title since 1985.
