​Kehrer vows to improve after slow start to West Ham career

West Ham United new boy Thilo Kehrer is convinced he will come good at the club.

The centre-back has struggled to find his best form in recent weeks, after signing from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

He gave away a penalty against Brighton, while scoring an own goal against Tottenham.

“I feel like I’ve had a kick-start to my West Ham career, directly into it by playing the games straight away,” Kehrer said.

“In my opinion it’s also the best way to get to know the team, to integrate inside the club and get to know each other.

“I didn’t have so many games in pre-season so I didn’t have a rhythm, so having my debut and playing right away felt really good for me. I also needed a little bit of time for my body to adapt and get really fit. I feel like I’m getting there.”
