Sommer has always been the keeper people think of when they think of Ochoa.I don't agree. He's always been a fantastic GK even. As a fellow countrymen I never lost sight of him and never understood why it took so long for big clubs to finally give him a chance.
True, he almost fucked it up with Bayern. Tho it has also to be said that the German press was very harsh on him. They didn't like a no-name (undeserved IMO) like him to take over from their golden boy Neuer.
A lot of Bayern fans were actually too on his side and taking a stance against the press putting pressure on him and talking him down every weekend after a not pitch perfect performance.
He started shaky at Inter too, visibly scared from that Bayern experience, but hit then finally the curve. He's now back to the level I'm quite uses to see of him. For example, when Italy won the Euros and Donnarumma got awarded not only best GK of the tournament but even MVP, I couldn't believe it. Not only was Donnarumma quite shaky. Sommer was single handedly keeping Switzerland on the tournament for much longer than deserved! And he repeated that performance in Qatar, especially against France!
Sommer is and has always been a fantastic goalkeeper. Lucky them they got themselves such an upgrade while earning a shit ton of money on the sale of the other imposter.
Superman for Switzerland and actually able to cut it in the big leagues too. I was never in doubt he'd be a success at Inter. The only downside compared to Onana is that Sommer is 7 years older.
