Biography: Best known for his seven years at Anfield in which he won the FA Cup and the UEFA Cup, Czech winger Berger struggled to become a Villa regular due to injury. He signed there for David O’Leary, but only played twice in his second season under O’Leary’s successor Martin O’Neill. He also played for Portsmouth as part of their rise to Premier League prominence. He played 42 times for the Czech national team, and scored in the final against Germany at Euro 1996, albeit in a losing cause. He retired in January 2010 due to persistent injury. At the age of 40 Berger was still playing on an amateur basis for Dolni Chabry in his native Czech Republic. Steven Gerrard said that "he was the best left-footed striker of a ball I have seen".
