Gregor Kobel joined Borussia Dortmund in the summer from Stuttgart and has proven to be a very good signing for Marco Rose. With question marks surrounding Roman Bürki over the last couple of years, BVB decided to bring in a new goalkeeper in the summer. Kobel has come in and brilliantly steadied the ship, putting together a string of fine performances to solidify himself as the club’s number one.

The Swiss giant is averaging 2.6 shots saved per game for the Black and Yellows in the league with a 65.1% save percentage after facing 43 shots on target so far. The stats show Kobel is doing what he can in the Dortmund goal, but it is clear to see the number of shots on target being allowed by the rest of the team is a problem.

Kobel has delivered the goods not only with his shot-stopping, but also with his excellent reading of the game and passing ability. He has also proven to be a match winner on a number of occasions with some stunning performances between the sticks.

Kobel joined Borussia Dortmund for just 15 million euros and at just 23, will potentially be the starting keeper for the club for years and years to come.
