Peter Odemwingie has revealed how Paul Scharner won over his new West Bromwich Albion teammates - by taking them all out to dinner!

Odemwingie admits he's enjoying life at the Hawthorns.

"I like it here," Odemwingie told the Daily Mail, "and not just because Paul Scharner took us out the other day. He said it was an Austrian custom to take everyone out for a meal. And he paid.

"He was trying to cut down on his bill by filling his plate in the canteen at lunchtime. Later on we had a big steak. I liked it."
