Some felt the former Juventus defender did well in his first outing for his new club while others voiced their concerns, so how did the 27-year-old do a week later against Charlton Athletic?
The Championship side hosted West Ham in a pre-season friendly on Saturday and while Dimitri Payet shone once again for Slaven Bilic’s side Charlton held firm and earned a 0-0 draw.
For the second match running West Ham’s forwards were left frustrated by a resilient defence but at the opposite end of the pitch Ogbonna looked like he is starting to get used to his new teammates.
It was always going to take time for the Italian to settle in a new country and at a new club but on this evidence in time he should grow into a fine defensive option for Bilic.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what West Ham fans thought of Ogbonna’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Was it just me or did anyone else think Ogbonna looked quality today?— SamcamWHU (@Samcam06) July 25, 2015
Ogbonna looked decent enough. Once the season gets going I can see him being a super solid addition.— KingdomOfWHAM (@KingdomOfWHAM) July 25, 2015
Ogbonna is going to be interesting. Looks clumsy at times and a beast in others. I'll put clumsiness down to needing match fitness.— Mark Harrison (@MarkHarrison23) July 25, 2015
