One of Liverpool’s many cult heroes from down the years, Milan Baros, is to retire from football at the end of the season.
Currently, the former headband-wearing striker is playing his football back at his boyhood club Banik Ostrava – the club Liverpool paid £2.2 million to sign the Czech international back in 2002.
Baros went on to score 19 goals in 68 appearances with the Reds. He was also part of that famous night in Istanbul, where he was replaced by Djibril Cisse after 85 minutes.
During the celebrations Baros reportedly dropped the Champions League trophy, leaving a noticeable dent in it!
Alongside his Champions League winners medal, Baros also won the League Cup in his time at Anfield. He can also boast an international Golden Boot as the pacy frontman was top scorer during Euro 2004, where his goals fired the Czech Republic to the semi-finals.
Since leaving Liverpool, he’s had spells with Aston Villa, Portsmouth and Lyon. It was at the French club where he was reunited with his former boss Gerard Houllier.
Now 38, Baros has announced that this will be his last professional season after three years with the club where it all began.
