Confirmed: Former Liverpool top-scorer Milan Baros joins Mlada Boleslav

The Czech striker has suffered badly with knee injuries in recent times.

When Liverpool signed talented striker Milan Baros in 2002 they were snapping up a talent being courted across Europe. But his career in England was certainly up-and-down. While he failed to produce consistent form whilst at Liverpool - although he was their top scorer in the 2004-05 season - Aston Villa or Portsmouth he was still considered hot property due mainly to his excellent performances for the Czech national team.

Since those awkward days in England he went on to play for Galatasaray, scoring 63 goals in 116 games.

After a series of knee injuries he had a short stint with his boyhood club Banik Ostrava in 2013. He then returned to Turkey, signing a one-year deal with Super Lig club Antalyaspor.

However, his unfortunate injury record soon struck again. He tore his cruciate ligament just before Christmas 2013 and was released in the January.

Once again the former Liverpool star headed to his first club Banik Ostrava for a third stint at the club and he went on to play just 11 games for the club last season as his injury troubles continued, scoring two goals.

Now he is on the move again. He has agreed a two-year deal to join fellow Czech top-flight outfit Mlada Boleslav on a two-year deal, as confirmed by the club's official website.

It is of course too late for the 33-year-old to ever truly recapture his best form but if he can just get a full season out of his tired legs he will undoubtedly be a happy man.
