Scharner earns Latics extension

Published Add your comment

Wigan defender Paul Scharner has signed a new two-year deal at the JJB Stadium.

The Austrian had been persistently linked with a move away from the club having become a fans´ favourite since arriving two and a half years ago, but the 28-year-old has now committed himself to the Latics.

He said: "I have never hidden my ambition as a player. That is what has been driving me forwards all my career. I believe that in order to progress you have to be totally dedicated to what you do."
