Aaron Cresswell has made his feelings on his West Ham United teammate Thilo Kehrer very clear indeed.
West Ham signed Thilo Kehrer from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2022 for around £10 million (The Guardian), and Aaron Cresswell spoke about the 26-year-old after Sunday’s win over Manchester United.
With Vladimir Coufal now out injured for the foreseeable future, having an in-form Kehrer deputising for the Czech ace will be vitally important for David Moyes and his team.
And Cresswell has spoken to the club’s official website about his thoughts on the 26-capped Germany international defender…
Aaron Cresswell shares his opinion on Thilo Kehrer
Whatever you think about the 26-year-old, his attitude, passion and love for the Hammers cannot be called into question.
Speaking after the win over Manchester United, Cresswell told WHUFC.com:
“It’s always a tough transition when you bring in eight or nine players and, certainly for the boys who have come from abroad, it takes time for them to settle in. It’s a new language, a new team, a new everything. We knew it would be tough but I think this game, some of the performances from the new lads…Thilo Kehrer was excellent.”
I must admit, there have been plenty of times this season when I’ve been completely dumfounded as to how bad Kehrer has played for West Ham.
However, he has shown glimpses of his true ability, most recently against Manchester United at he London Stadium on Sunday night.
Aaron Cresswell is clearly a big fan of Thilo Kehrer, and I still believe that he could go on to become a really important player for the Hammers.
