Kevin Trapp is back at Eintracht Frankfurt after spending three seasons at Paris Saint-Germain! The 28-year-old keeper has joined 'Die Adler' on a one-year loan deal, the club have revealed.
Frankfurt's first-choice keeper, Frederik Rønnow, is still bothered by the knee-injury he picked up during pre-season, and Trapp will be able to provide back-up for the Dane.
"Frederik Rønnow's current knee problems have made ous think. Unfortunately, our first-choice keeper has suffered a knee injury in pre-season that hasn't quite healed and is still bothering him," Frankfurt sporting director Bruno Hübner told eintracht.de and added:
"We believe in his qualities and are convinced that he will grow into the role of number one. But, in Kevin, we had the chance to commit a goalkeeper who is not only ready to play, but also an absolute identification figure with great leadership potential."
Trapp, 28, says he's happy to be back at the club he played for from 2012 to 2015.
"The contact with the club bosses and many former players such as Marco Russ has never stopped, and I was happy for Eintract when they won the DFB-Pokal. For me, it was important to get into an environment where I feel good and where I can play. I'm looking forward to another year at Eintracht," Trapp said.
At PSG, Trapp was the third-choice keeper with Gianluigi Buffon and Alphonse Areola both being in front of the 28-year-old.
