West Brom manager Roberto Di Matteo was happy with the club debut of recent signing Paul Scharner in the 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur.
The 30-year-old Austria international and former Wigan Athletic man impressed in a midfield role for the Baggies, as they secured a deserved point from The Hawthorns clash.
Di Matteo told the Birmingham Mail:“He certainly looks a good player for us. I knew him, I’ve seen him play many times and I spoke to him during the summer.
“He’s very professional, he’s very ambitious and he’s the kind of character I like in my team. He’s lively and sometimes people take that in a negative way.
“I wouldn’t say he is your typical football player. He’s got a little bit more about him and I wouldn’t see that as a negative – I would see that as a positive.
“On Saturday I thought he was tremendous for the time he was on the pitch. I knew before the game he didn’t have 90 minutes in his legs yet, but I thought he made a big contribution to our performance.
“He gave everything in the minutes he was on the pitch and he will only get better the more games he gets under his belt.”
