Villa's Berger set for MLS switch?

Villa's Berger set for MLS switch?

Aston Villa midfielder Patrik Berger could make a move to Major League Soccer - and Martin O'Neill will not stand in his way.

The 33-year-old former Liverpool star recently returned to Villa Park after being loan-out to Stoke City following a breach of club discipline.

While O'Neill has said still has a chance to make the first-team, Berger's agent is thought to have been in talks about a move to the United States - where former England skipper David Beckham will be plying his trade at the end of the season.

Boss Martin O'Neill told the club's official site: "The situation with Berger is that he is back here now, obviously he has apologised for what had happened. His agent had mentioned about the possibility of him going somewhere abroad for the last few months, if that materialises, fine.

"If not, then he just gets his head down here and the team will get picked on merit as far as I am concerned. If he is doing well enough, then he will be back in contention."

Berger's contract runs out at the end of the season but O'Neill's words suggest he could be allowed to move to the MLS in time for the start of their season in April.

Superb footballer in his prime, but sadly that was a good few seasons before he ended up at B6.

Another wonder signing by DOL. Unfortunately MON can't get rid of his legacy quick enough and bring in some quality players

seems like everyone wants to go to the states at the moment, but what berger fails to see is that they want past glory players, not potentially a good player but nevr lived up to his reputation.

can he just hurry up and p*ss off! the only thing he did that was memorable for villa was score past us in the first game of the season when he played for Pompey. How much wages has this guy taken for nine games. Aaaaaagh.

Always knew he was a money grabbing mofo. But Im sure he could still do a job for us on the left????? We might as well get something from him during the last few months on his contract? He surely must be better than Davis on the left........He can still take corners and free kicks which no-one else seems able to do at the moment.

The problem with Berger is that we all know he WAS quality but as we never see him play we don't know if if he still IS quality. i would like to see him stay on with us & play until the end of the season. We may see some of the old Berger , and at least it will enable us to have options in midfield rather than the standard "out of form" sh**e we have to watch at present (GB excluded-when he plays in midfieild). Surely anything is better than "lazy"Petrov, "i cant pass" McCann & a "knackered" Gabby. Have jonah, tylervilla etc got the same opinion of Mark Delaney?

I reckon Delaney has probably played his last game for us. I personally think he's a great defender but his injuries (usually not his fault) have ruined the last 2 years for him. Now we have Hughes, mellberg! and hopefully bardsley to play RB next season
