"Wigan are flirting with the idea of winning a place in one of the European competitions this season," said Scharner, 27. "We are well equipped to do so. I think we can make a good start. Chris Hutchings is much more open to listening to what the players think. Paul Jewell was more an army sergeant type of guy.
"Our pre-season has gone well but I'd have preferred us to play against a top club - as things stand it is hard to assess what level we are at.
"Liverpool have made the best summer signings, and they are a club I'd be very interested in joining."
