Scharner is largely focused and has always known his mind from a young age. This led to an end to his timing at Austria Vienna, the first club. Only months after he won the league and cup double, he had a fall out with Joachin Low, the World-Cup winning manager of the future.
He says that he played in 8 different positions when he was a part of Austria Vienna. Starting to a goalkeeper to striker, he had played everywhere.
Scharner said that he thought after playing 3 years of professional football, he had to focus on 1-2 positions. So, he talked to Joachin Low. He had been consistent in the first team in the eight-win but he told Joachin Low that he is going to drop out as he won’t be able to help the team in that position.
As he burned his bridges in Austria, he had been forced to look for a new home. Before he signed into SK Brann’s Norwegian side, he spent some months at SV Salzburg. On 23rd December, he signed a contract with Wigan. His decision of choosing Wigan was vindicated as Birmingham suffered relegation.
Albeit, they won against Arsenal, they lost against Manchester United and Cardiff. This had been disappointing for them. The next season was tougher. They stayed up on the final day as they defeated Sheffield United and sent Blades down. Jewell was replaced by Chris Hutchings, his manager. Following a difficult run of ten matches without any win, Steve Bruce took over the management of the team. Scharner said that he is a good manager who has pushed him to another level.
They had a good season but they were unable to hold the position because they sold Wilson Palacious and Emile Heskey.
