Bernt Haas (born 8 April 1978) is a Swiss former professional football defender.

Career[edit]

Haas was born in Vienna, Austria. He began his career at Grasshoppers Zurich, where he played for several seasons before moving to England to join Premier League club Sunderland in August 2001.[1] Despite making 27 appearances for the club in 2001–02, he did not play for Sunderland during the following season and was loaned out to FC Basel.

Haas joined West Bromwich Albion in 2003,[2] and was a regular at right-back as Albion were promoted back to the Premier League. He scored with a superb volley in the 2–0 League Cup win against Manchester United,[3] having already scored in an earlier round against Brentford.[4] He also scored once in the league against Crewe.[5] However, he found his chances limited in the top-flight, and left the club by mutual consent on 21 January 2005.[6] The following day he signed for SC Bastia in France, whom he played for prior to joining 1. FC Köln. After just one season at Cologne, he joined Swiss Super League club FC St. Gallen in 2007.

Haas played for the Swiss national team at Euro 2004 and was sent off in the match against England.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Haas once worked as a model for Armani.[8]
