West Ham United

 

In January 2013 Emanuel Pogatetz moved on loan from Vfl Wolfsburg to English Premier League side West Ham United.

Because the traditional English Club had at the time a few defenders out injured, they decided to bolster their squad with Emanuel Pogatetz on a short-term basis.

However the injured defenders recovered quicker than first thought and Emanuel Pogatetz was only used as a substitute for a few minutes late in the game or in positions he was not used toplay.

Nevertheless it was great for Emanuel Pogatetz to be back in English football after 3 years of abstinence and to play again at such momentous Stadiums like the Anfield Road at Liverpool .
