Aston Villa

English Premier League club Aston Villa recently dismissed former Czech Republic international Patrik Berger following an unusual turn of events. The 34-year-old midfielder openly advised team-mate Gareth Barry to accept an offer from rivals Liverpool despite the fact that Barry had an ongoing contract. Berger himself played for Liverpool from 1996 to 2003. “His comments are ludicrous,” said Aston Villa’s manager Martin O’Neill, and immediately showed Berger the door.
