"I was fit at the beginning of the season but I wasn't playing. There is no point in staying here. I want to play football. I can't say my Liverpool career has been great. Nor can I say it has been bad. I've had good times, I've had bad times. Actually I have been through everything since I have been at Liverpool. Whatever you can experience, I have experienced."
Berger in the 2002-2003 season
"The coolest member of the team. He is a snappy dresser and rarely without a pair of shades. Although he is from the Czech Republic, he has become very English — even his kids speak with a Liverpool accent."
Owen in 2001 on Berger
"A few years ago I doubt I would have believed I could play 100 games for Liverpool. Now I think I can make another 100. This is great news for me. It is a great number, a magic number to play 100 league games for Liverpool and I am very proud of this.
I had a good start when I arrived but then I was left out of the side and couldn't get a regular game. Now I think I am in the most consistent form I have ever been at the club. I'm happy with my position in the team and also with the quality of our side and the spirit within the club.
The gaffer has made me work on different areas of my game. I used to play attacking football all the time and never defend. Now I realise I must defend as well and I think that's where I have improved a lot."
Berger played his 100th league game for LFC on 11th March 2000
"Patrik has scored nine goals for us this season, and he is improving all the time. He is showing what he is capable of, and brings a lot to us. I would say he has been directly involved in a third of the goals we have scored this season. He has either scored them, created them, been fouled for free kicks, or delivered the free kicks to score or create goals for others. This is quite a contribution."
"He is a very good midfield player. He likes to run, he likes to do his defensive duties well, and his understanding of the game and his realisation of the needs of his team is getting better. He has a very good partnership with Dominic Matteo. He is willing to work with him, doing his share of the defensive work, and they have worked hard in training to make this partnership work - they get on very well together as footballers."
Houllier on Patrik Berger in April 2000
"I’ve never seen a ball move so fast in my life. It’s a good job I didn’t get in the way of either shot or I’d have been back in the net with them."
