Berger Looking To End On A High

Patrik Berger is looking to put yet another season plagued by injuries behind him and help keep Villa's European dreams alive.

The 34-year-old midfielder said: 'It is great to be back and playing again with the first-team in the Premier League. I have missed a large part of this season through injury, but that's life and I can't do anything about it. I am fine now and have been doing my best in training and with the reserves. The reward now is that I am back and part of the team.'

The Czech added on the official site: 'Europe is a possibility again now - I really think it is. We have a big game this weekend against Birmingham City and then we go up to Goodison to face Everton. They have some tough fixtures between now and the end of the season, so we will see. All we can do is keep winning our games and hope they slip up.'

Meanwhile a report in the Daily Mail says that Martin O'Neill is playing his cards close to his chest as to whether he will offer Berger another contract. 'I'm going to have a chat with Patrik,' he said, 'am I going to tell you what about? No. I'm going to discuss it with him first before anything is made public.'

Berger, who has been linked with a move to the American MSL and back to his homeland, said of his future: 'I'm unsure as to what is happening. I would like to carry on playing but I don't really know what's going to happen here. I will keep my options open and then sit down with the family and decide with them what is the best for us at the end of the season.'

The way Patrik finished last season, I think we all expected quite a swan song from him this campaign. Sad to say that the old, old story of injuries put paid to those hopes.

Great player for liverpool I'll never forget his left foot pile drivers!

He could still have a role to play in the squad imo. His experience and quality is there for all to see.. If he's happy to come on a dozen times as sub throughout the season, why not keep him around?

Yes, good point johnnyuk. Pity there isn't a 24 year old Berger out there somewhere though.
