Club career

Pogatetz's career started at Sturm Graz before going to Kärnten and later to Bayer Leverkusen. After a short loan spell at FC Aarau, Grazer AK, and Spartak Moscow, he joined Middlesbrough.

He had also been tracked by Fulham, but during his final game on loan at Spartak Moscow, he tackled Yaroslav Kharitonskiy, leaving the Russian with a double leg fracture. He was banned for 24 weeks by the Russian Football Union[2]

Pogatetz in action for Middlesbrough.

Pogatetz broke his nose, jaw, and cheekbone in an accidental clash of heads with FC Basel's Mladen Petrić during the first leg of Middlesbrough's UEFA Cup quarter-final. Pogatetz was warned against returning to full training for three months for fear of risking his eyesight. He underwent successful surgery to have the fractures reset. Dr. Douglas Bryan declared himself "delighted" with the Austrian's progress.[1]

Pogatetz was ordered to take no physical exercise for a month and to stay away from full football training for three months as of 12 April 2006. "It is anticipated he will make a full recovery and be back with his team-mates for pre-season training," said Middlesbrough head physio Grant Downie. "The only disappointing thing for Manny [Pogatetz] is he won't be able to play football, and he was desperate to get back involved." Downie added "But another blow to his face would risk severe trauma and a potentially eyesight-threatening injury."[1]

Emanuel suffered from a hernia, for which he received corrective surgery in Munich on 24 April 2006. On 4 July, he returned to training following successful surgery on his hernia and cheek.

In the 2006–07 season, Pogatetz was forced into the centre of defence due to an injury to Chris Riggott. He has since formed impressive partnerships at the back with both Robert Huth and Jonathan Woodgate. Pogatetz was able to keep his place, even upon the returns of Woodgate and Riggott. Former England and Middlesbrough coach Steve McClaren said "He never, ever, gives less than 300% in performance."

At the close of the 2007–08 season, Pogatetz was given the captain's armband on a full-time basis following his taking up of the role towards the end of the season.

Pogatetz returned in the 2009-10 season after a long injury layoff, on the 7th November in a 0-1 loss to Plymouth Argyle, only to suffer a recurrence of his cheekbone fracture with the scores tied at 0-0. He made his return to the first team against Nottingham Forest on the 21st November in a 1-1 draw. He had to wear a protective mask because of his cheekbone fracture which he picked up in the Plymouth game. He received a bang to the head in the Forest game and had to receive stitches at half time, he still completed the full 90 minutes.

International career

Pogatetz is a regular Austrian international, having played 37 times, tallying two goals. As a left back, he was bought by Middlesbrough so as to compete with Franck Queudrue for a starting place in league games. Pogatetz is also aptly comfortable at centre back, having commanded this position at both club and international level.

In September 2006, Pogatetz was banned from playing for his country after he criticised the coach Josef Hickersberger and captain Andreas Ivanschitz after Austria drew with Costa Rica and lost to Venezuela in an international tournament played earlier in the month.

Since March 2009, he has served as the captain for the Austrian national team.
