Boyce welcomes Scharner back from Wigan

Wigan Athletic defender Emmerson Boyce has welcomed back Paul Scharner.

The Austrian is back at the DW for his second spell.

“It was great to see him back – and we all have fond memories of Scharns both as a player and as a person,” Boyce told the Wigan Observer.

“He’s a good footballer, great in the air, he reads the game well and is quite quick. And as long as his head’s right he’ll be a massive asset for us.

“I think the manager has done fantastic to get him back here – he’ll have a point to prove, to show he can still do it in the Premier League.

“It’s a great move for all parties.”
