Patrik Berger (-csˈpatrɪk ˈbɛrɡr̩; born 10 November 1973 in Prague) is a retired Czech footballer. He has played in Czech Republic, Germany, and England. He is best remembered for his time at Liverpool.

The success of the Czech Republic's national team in the Euro 1996 raised the profile of many players - including that of Berger, Pavel Nedvěd, and Karel Poborský - and convinced some of Europe's most prestigious clubs to purchase them. Capable of occupying midfield and forward positions, Berger became noted for his powerful strikes, surging runs, and strong left foot. Berger was beset with injuries throughout his career and received specialist treatment in the United States. He retired on 6 January 2010 due to knee injuries.
