Exclusive: Paul Robinson drops Martin Olsson dressing room reveal amid West Brom trial

Paul Robinson insists that Martin Olsson would fit right in at West Brom having shared a dressing room with him at Blackburn Rovers.

Speaking of his former teammate to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the ex-England goalkeeper says that the Swedish international is an “unassuming” presence that means he could settle into any squad.

West Brom boss Slaven Bilic confirmed at his press conference that the club had taken Olsson on trial this week with a view to signing him up as a free agent for the rest of the season.

Having played alongside the defender during their time at Ewood Park, Robinson says that he cannot see the 31-year-old having any problems settling in with the other players at the Hawthorns.

Robinson told Football Insider: “He’s quiet, he’s very quiet, very unassuming – a lovely, lovely lad, really nice lad.

“Wouldn’t find it hard to fit into any dressing room, very quiet, very unassuming but a really good character at the same time.”

Olsson has been without a club since leaving Swansea City over the summer of 2019 and has gone over a year without playing a game of competitive football due to injury.

He is a proven player in both the Premier League and the second tier of English football, with nearly 200 top-flight appearances under his belt.

The 48-cap Swedish international in naturally a left-back but has also played further up the flank during his time at Blackburn, Norwich and Swansea.
