Patrik Berger announces retirementGeoff Berkeley

Patrik Berger, the former Liverpool and Czech Republic international, has announced his retirement after losing his long-running battle with injury.

The 36-year-old, who is currently at Sparta Prague, has barely feature this season because of his injury problems. His last appearance came on August 8 last year.

"Patrik told me yesterday 'It's over. My knee can no longer hold up'," Jozef Chovanec, the Sparta Prague manager, said.

Berger started his career as with Sparta Prague before rejoining his hometown club in 2008.

However, the midfielder is best known for his time at Liverpool, where he spent seven successful years between 1996 and 2003. This was followed by spells with Portsmouth, Stoke City and Aston Villa.

Berger was capped 44 times, scoring 18 goals for the Czech Republic between 1993 and 2001

Always liked him as a player thought he brought something different to us when he was here

Was a really good player , in the days when Fowler , Collymore , Mcmanaman and Berger were all playing well we were great to watch . Good luck to him .

A very good player who was unlucky with injuries and wasn't played to his strengths for the majority of his career with us. Always remember him for his amazing long range shots and his blistering start to his career with us.

Recall a few crackers scored against Chelsea ~ best wishes to Paddy

did he get a hat trick on debut? leicester?
