All Bunderliga players have good qualities and skills including Fabian Schar. Who is he that becomes Hoffenheim’s new central defender? As it is known, Bundesliga has long been a playground for Switzerland finest players and in order to support the team’s performance they hire the arrival of coveted centre-back Fabian Schar from FB Basel 1893.
The 23-year-old Fabian Schar has signed a gour-year-deal contract at TSG 1899 Hoffeinheim. He described that club as a young, ambitious and ideal club for making the next step. Schar is actually not a stranger in the football world. He started his career as a football player six year ago when he was a mere spectator for die Nati’s 2009 FIFA Under-17 World Cup triumph. He made his debut in the Swiss second division for hometown club FC Will 1900. At that time, he was not sure that he could survive in his job. To get rid of that thought he enrolled as an intern at his local bank when he was only 17.
He explained the story in an interview on the website of Swiss bank Raiffeisen, his former employer when he used to work all day in the bank as an intern. Go to training and come home every day and start to do his homework at 10 p.m. it took around a year before he finally made his debut on the football pitch.
Schar’s career went smoothly when he firstly made 60-yeard lob against FV Aarau in October 2011 went viral. Then, not until 12 months later he signed the dotted line at record Swiss champions Basel. He capped his debut season as the young center-back player with the club’s fourth successive domestic title under Rot-Baluen legend Murat Yakin. He also was voted Swiss Young Player of the Year for good measure.
Schar also impressed the Will native on the international stage as Switzerland made it as last 16 of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil but he still chose to stay at Basel. Although he chose to stay in his team, he collected another league crown in 2014/15. Later on 4 June 2015, he decided to join the Bunderliga ranks.
The same as his former Basel mentor, Yakin, Schar has high confident on the ball, has an eye for a pass, can score goals, takes no prisoners in the challenge and positions himself to defend with the nonchalance of a seasoned veteran. He is also has three seasons’ experience in the UEFA Champions League and those what make his the man to lead for the big occasion.
