Berger's Rushed Visa

LONDON () -- Czech midfielder Patrik Berger is set to make his English premier league debut for Liverpool at Middlesbrough on Saturday after government officials rushed through his work visa application.

Berger's work permit is expected to arrive in time to ensure he is eligible for the first two rounds of the European Cup Winners' Cup before Thursday's deadline.

The 22-year-old has been training alone since completing negotiations for his $5.04 million transfer from German club Borussia Dortmund.
