He has just made a big switch to the Premier League – and former Motherwell star Cedric Kipre will be delighted to keep a clean sheet on his West Brom debut.
The Ivory Coast youth international signed a long-term deal with English top flight newboys West Brom before the EPL start last week.
There wasn’t a debut to be had though in the 3-0 defeat to Leicester City.
But in the Carabao Cup, Kipre was handed his chance. Whilst West Brom were expected to sweep past Harrogate Town, it was still a boost for the defender to keep a clean sheet in the 3-0 win.
Now he’ll be looking to make inroads into getting Premier League chances, the next opportunity coming this Saturday away to Everton.
Kipre joined Motherwell in 2017 after his release from Slaven Bilic’s weekend opponents. His sole season at Fir Park won him a seven-figure move to Wigan, who have sold him for less than that as they battle administration.
