Jan Kirchhoff’s career history until 2018

Here is a player that has all the attributes to be a top defender. Marking, tackling, heading, ect, ect. Schalke obviously thought so and spend £21 million to bring his services to their club. The most important thing is IMO is that he is very consistent at every club he plays at and secures great average ratings every season. Just a shame this kid has now agreed a deal with Bayern, making him impossible to sign during the first season. But a must buy if the opportunity arises.

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

Kirchhoff has been excellent for my Arsenal team. In a poor year, he was my only player to make the team of the year (13-14 season). Consistently gets high ratings.


Does Kirchoff have the ability to play well as a covering defender? I’m worried that opposition attackers would exploit his lack of speed.

I have never tried him there, but you could test it, it’ll soon become apparent if not.

Kirchoff has been truly immense for me. i am into february in my 4th season and he is rating at over 8 for the season! Zec i play him as a CD with the cover duty and he is incredible at interceptions.
