Michael Berkeley's guest for the Sport Relief appeal this week is the Austrian footballer Paul Scharner, who currently plays in the Premier League for West Bromwich Albion. he started his career playing for Viennese and Salzburg clubs, before joining Norwegian club SK Brann in 2004. In December 2005 he signed to Wigan Athletic, scoring the winning goal in the Carling Cup against Arsenal in his first match. Over the next five years he played every outfield position for Wigan except left back. In August 2010 he joined West Brom, where he has found his best form playing in his favoured role of central midfield.
His musical choices for Private Passions reflect his Austrian background, and feature works by Mozart, Beethoven and the Strauss family, as well as pieces by Grieg and Vivaldi.
