Man of the Match against Düsseldorf and Hoffenheim
Thuram was voted the Man of the Match twice in September. He didn’t even start in the home game against Fortuna Düsseldorf but he came on in the 67thminute for Alassane Plea with the score at 1-0 and gave a match winning performance. First of all he put a great ball from Stefan Lainer in to the back of the net, then two minutes before time he sealed the win after a chaotic sequence in the opposition box.Thuram also contributed heavily during the 3-0 away win at TSG Hoffenheim, providing Plea with a great pass to score before producing a great solo effort himself to score the second goal.
