Berlin (AP) – National footballer Thilo Kehrer wants to play another role in Joachim Löw’s team soon. “I think it will be more of the center-back in the future,” said the 23-year-old from Paris Saint-Germain of Die Welt daily.
Kehrer has been used in nine international matches for the DFB squad to date. “So far I have played further outside and further up in the front of the national team. I feel comfortable there and have learned a lot in this position recently,” said the former pro van Schalke. “My goal is to play more and more for myself,” added Kehrer.
At his employer PSG, several corona cases recently made headlines after the lost final in the Champions League against FC Bayern. French international striker Kylian Mbappé and superstar Neymar were also infected and were missing from coach Thomas Tuchel’s team. “It is extremely careful. We are very careful and pay close attention to adhering to the hygiene concept. We have been tested very often in recent months, and now even more now,” said Kehrer, who described the situation with the French champions.
