Fabian Schar had an excellent season for us as the £3M signing from Deportivo finally got into the side in early November and helped us in our first win of the season against Watford.
That was a massive win for the club, and then the Swiss International was a first-team regular and seemed to get better as the season went on.
Schar also and ended up as the club’s third highest scorer after scoring four good goals – some of them vital.
And the 27-year-old finished second in our voting for Player of The Season behind on-loan striker Salomon Rondon.
Fabian Schar scores against Burnley – what a fabulous strike!
This is what Schar has said in the Chronicle today:
“I had a quite hard start, like the whole team. I think the whole team struggled a lot the first 10 games, but then we started getting points and doing a good job over the whole season.
“I think, for me and the team, the second part was quite good, and we can be proud of the end. For me, it was also a quite good season when I look now.”
“I enjoy playing in the Premier League, especially for this club and these amazing fans. I look forward to the next year.”
“It was the perfect end, I think, for us.” “To get one position above at the end, and to give the fans something, was the perfect game for us.”
“It was a quite good day for us.”
“It’s great for us, for the whole team, to get this support every game.
“At home games or away, they’re always there, and they give us some really good support. That’s what we need.”
He’s a favorite player of ours, and if Rafa can make a few more signings like Fabian, we’ll be in (very) good shape.
Wonder how the negotiations are dragging on with owner Mike Ashley.
Dragging on probably.
