Manfred Payrhuber

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Manfred Payrhuber (born September 10, 1940 in Linz ; † February 6, 2018 ) was an Austrian sports commentator .


Manfred Payrhuber trained as a retail salesman and was later to take over a paper shop . Payrhuber started working for ORF at the age of 18 and was, among other things, the sports director at the Upper Austria regional studio for 29 years. The sports reporter commented on six finals of the soccer world championship and was also on the road with the Austrian national ski team as part of their appearances for the Austrian Ski Association .

After his retirement in 2002, Payrhuber started at LASK as head of press, where he has since been active as a place speaker. Payrhuber regretted that the referee was not allowed to give much more than the goal scorers and the number of visitors during the game, so only immediate information for the game. Payrhuber was a member of the Upper Austrian Press Club.

Payrhuber was married and a father of three. He had been a fan of the LASK football club since he was seven . His greatest hobby, however, was the Attersee , where he spent many hours in summer.
