Paul Scharner has said football is nothing more than a business after deciding to retire following his pay-off from Hamburg.
Scharner, who was paid €450,000 to rescind his contract after failing to establish himself in the first-team squad, has said he intends to spend time being a family man after becoming disillusioned with the state of the game.
