Berbatov will return to White Hart Lane for the first time, following his deadline day move to Manchester United.
Sheringham told The Sun: “The Spurs fans won’t be very happy with Berbatov and won’t be treating his return lightly. I understand it.
“Football fans are very passionate and loyal to their team and Berbatov will just have to deal with it.”
He continued: “It’s been going on for years, this is not the first time it’s happened. I don’t really see why the authorities are suddenly clamping down on it now.
“Fans do it to put players off and I don’t think Spurs are any worse than any other club.
“They show their feelings like everyone else.
“Berbatov is a brilliant player and the fans didn’t want him to go. They didn’t want me to go either and I got hammered.
“But if supporters are abusing you that means you must be a threat to their team. All this with Sol is because he is a fantastic player and they want to find a way of distracting him.
“You can’t get upset about it.”
