Paul Robinson gushed about West Brom midfielder Chris Brunt after it emerged how many Premier League assists he racked up in the last decade.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-England No.1 pointed out Brunt had been a talented player for a long time now and suggested he was an asset to the Baggies.
It was revealed recently that Brunt was 10th for most Premier League assists in the last decade with him having racked up 47.
Robinson suggested that the 35-year-old was an asset for the Baggies due to his ability to be a threat from set-plays with him having a great left foot.
When asked about Brunt being 10th for most Premier League assists in the last decade and if that highlights what a talented player he is, Robinson told Football Insider: “Yea he is, he has been for a long, long time now.
“He’s been in and around the top-level of football for a while now, I think he is 35 now and he’s been a great servant for West Bromwich Albion.
“He’s got a great left foot, his delivery is always on plumb, he’s not a regular starter, he’s been in and out of the team, but to have someone of that quality for a set-play…he can deliver a corner, a free-kick, it’s a great record to have to be in the top-10 and it’s a fantastic achievement.”
Brunt has been on the fringes of Slaven Bilic’s squad this season as he has only featured four times in the Championship so far.
None of the veteran’s league outings have seen him play more than 10 minutes in a single game, though he did get 90 minutes under his belt in the 2-1 loss to Millwall in the EFL Cup.
