Milan Baros
FACTFILE
Milan Baros
Born: 28/10/81
Club: Liverpool
Position: Striker
Debut: 25/04/01 v Belgium
Liverpool's Milan Baros made an instant impact on the international scene as a 19-year-old.

Although not a regular starter in the Premiership, his energy and direct style of play has made him a fans' favourite at Anfield.

He scored 12 goals in his first full term in England but was held back by a broken ankle the following season.

At international level, his pace and dribbling make him the ideal foil for regular target man Jan Koller.

Baros began his career at Banik Ostrava and was being tracked by a number of top clubs when Liverpool paid 3.6m for him in 2001.

The 'Ostravan Maradona" is yet to fully live up to his lofty nickname, but Euro 2004 could provide him with the ideal stage.


Did you know? Liverpool had to wait four months for Baros to join because he had not yet qualified for a work permit.
