Thilo Kehrer

Tübingen, Germany
Squad Number: 24
Position: Defender
Born: 21st Sep 1996 (Tübingen, Germany)
Signed: 17th Aug 2022 (£12,000,000)
Contract: 4 years + 2 year option
Previous Club: Paris St Germain

KUMB Awards: None.

The German international completed his £12million plus add-ons move to West Ham from Paris St Germain after being made surplus to requirements at Parc des Princes.

Capped more than 20 times by Germany before moving to east London, the Tubingen-born defender, who operates mainly at centre half but can also feature at full back moved to France in a €37million switch from Schalke in 2018 before sealing a move to the Premier League four years later.

 

vs Silkeborg

3-2: Thursday, 15th September
(Played 90 minutes)

Rash and aggressive defending saw Kehrer caught out twice, one time that was punished and a second that very much should have been.

vs FCSB

3-1: Thursday, 8th September
(Played 90 minutes)

Coasted through a game where he needed to take control. Should have showed his class, but didn't.

vs Chelsea

1-2: Saturday, 3rd September
(Played 90 minutes)

That?EUR(TM)s a big, big mistake to get under that ball and miss the header. Otherwise defended well.

vs Tottenham Hotspur

1-1: Wednesday, 31st August
(Played 90 minutes)

Unfortunate with the own goal, Son gets there if he doesn?EUR(TM)t, and he managed him quite well. His passing is slick, and whilst not particularly complicated, his progressive choices are helping this team play better football.

vs Aston Villa

1-0: Sunday, 28th August
(Played 90 minutes)

Looked perfectly fit for that wide centre back role in a three, dealing with Villa?EUR(TM)s diagonals into the space behind the wing back. Then was good on the left of two centre backs, his recovery pace clearly on show and made a difference.

vs Viborg FF

3-0: Thursday, 25th August
(Played 90 minutes)

A couple of shaky moments, but otherwise a calm display. Hits his passes with a lovely weight on them. Threatened goal on crosses.

vs Brighton & Hove Albion

0-2: Sunday, 21st August
(Played 90 minutes)

Ridiculous challenge for the penalty, and then not long after he made another lunging slide tackle that was late and probably could have had him sent off, were Brighton more cynical. The positioning for the second goal is inexcusable, just fundamentally wrong and awful from a centre back.

vs Viborg FF

3-1: Thursday, 18th August

(Replaced Ogbonna 67) Looked calm in defence and on the ball, and proved quickly that he is comfortable defending and using both feet.
