Scharner confirms summer departure

04 May 2010 01:06
The news it seems is true. Paul Scharner is going to leave Wigan Athletic in the summer after four and a half memorable seasons with the club. The 29 year old Austrian has never been short of a thing to say and sported one of his more flambuoyant hair styles at the weekend as he adopted the word 'Thanx', written in blue letters on the back of his head. Adopted as a Wiganer, Scharner is hoping to remain in the Premiership and is hoping to find himself a midfield position with another club. He told BBC Radio Manchester: "This was the last game at the DW Stadium for me, that's true - as a Wigan player. Next season, I am looking for a midfield position but it's too early to say at which club. I am looking to stay in the Premier League." "I have lots of memories. I think we have to talk for another 30 minutes to cover all the stuff. First of all I have to say thank you to the chairman of Wigan Athletic for giving me the chance to play in the Premier League. "And another thank you to the supporters. They created a nice song for me. It was very enjoyable and I go home with tears in my eyes." It goes without saying that all Wigan Athletic fans will of course wish Paul Scharner all the best for the future in whatever he does. From the very first game and the goal against Arsenal in the Carling Cup, through to next week against Chelsea, we have enjoyed every minute. CLICK HERE FOR THE MESSAGEBOARD
