Having come to the wider public's attention with his performances for Czech Republic during their run to the final of Euro 96, Patrik Berger arrived at Anfield that summer and quickly became a hit with the Anfield faithful, being named the Premier League's player of the month in September 1996.

The winger's time with the club was almost short-lived following a fallout with manager Roy Evans, but Gerard Houllier's arrival gave him a new lease of life and he played an important role in Liverpool's UEFA Cup and FA Cup successes in 2001, despite missing the majority of that season through injury.

Indeed, it was injuries which scuppered a large chunk of his Liverpool career, but he still managed to make 195 appearances for the club, scoring 35 goals across all competitions.

Berger missed out on the League Cup and UEFA Super Cup triumphs in 2001 due to being sidelined at the time, but he still managed to win three trophies that year before leaving Liverpool at the end of his contract in 2003.
