Patrik Berger has told his Aston Villa teammate that he should join Liverpool this summer. The Czech midfielder believes it is the opportunity of a lifetime for the England midfielder.

"It's Liverpool and if I was in Gareth's position I would go there tomorrow," said the former Czech international.

"It is the opportunity of a lifetime in my opinion. I would go to Liverpool and experience it.

"Gareth is the heart of our team but Liverpool would be a massive challenge for him. It would be Champions League every year and he would be challenging to win trophies every year.

"Liverpool don't come after you every year. They want him because he has had a fantastic season and has been our main player from the beginning to the end. He has also played very well for the national team. I am not surprised they would like to sign him."
