Club careerEdit

A leftsided midfielder renowned for his accurate crossing, Amerhauser has only played for SV Salzburg and GAK in the Austrian Football Bundesliga. Regarded as one of Austria's biggest talents in the early 1990s, he never really lived up to his potential but he did win major silverware with Salzburg and Graz.

In his first season, Amerhauser scored the decisive 3-0 in probably the best game Stadion Lehen has ever seen against Sporting Lisbon in the UEFA Cup.[1] Only 19 years of age, he went on to play in both legs of the Final which they lost to Inter Milan.

In 2007, he experienced a career low with the demotion of GAK to the Regionalliga Mitte because of financial difficulties.

International careerEdit

He made his debut for Austria in a March 1998 friendly match against Hungary in which he immediately scored his first international goal. He then was a participant at the 1998 FIFA World Cup but did not play. His last international was a September 2005 World Cup qualifying match against Azerbaijan.
