Kevin Trapp re-joins the Bundesliga side in a deal that brings his 3-year stint at Paris to an end winning 10 trophies, including two Ligue 1 titles.
He started his career at FC Kaiserslautern in 2008 and later joined Eintracht Frankfurt in 2012 where he went on to make 82 Bundesliga appearances. The German goalkeeper also starred in their 2013-14 UEFA Europa League campaign that saw German side reach the last-32 stage of the tournament. Trapp’s impressive displays led to the Ligue 1 champions acquiring his services in 2015. The stopper has since played in 63 Ligue 1 matches and featured in two UEFA Champions League runs.
However, with the arrival of Italian legend Gianluigi Buffon from Juventus and the emergence of Alphonse Areola, Kevin Trapp was sure to miss game-time, hence he joined his former club.

On the international level, the 28-year-old has earned 3 caps for Germany and was part of Joachim Low’s 2018 FIFA World Cup squad in Russia.
Speaking on his return to the club, Kevin Trapp said: “When I was in Paris, I always looked back fondly on my time at Frankfurt. The 2013/14 season in the Europa League was special and obviously, I’d like to relive that now. It was important for me to come into an environment where I feel happy and where I can play. I’m looking forward to another season at Eintracht.”
Kevin Trapp wears the no.31 shirt for the club and he made his debut in Saturday’s home game against SV Werder Bremen.
