Robinson tips Johnstone to quit West Brom after 'Phenomenal' sighting

Paul Robinson has tipped Sam Johnstone to leave West Brom at the end of the season if the club are relegated.

The ex-Spurs and England goalkeeper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, heaped praise on the 27-year-old for his “phenomenal” performance against his former employers Manchester United on Sunday.

Johnstone produced a finger-tip save from a Harry Maguire header in the final moments of the match to ensure that the score finished 1-1 at The Hawthorns.

The English shot-stopper has been one of Albion’s best performers this season, despite Sam Allardyce’s side conceding 55 goals and only keeping two clean sheets.

Robinson suggested Johnstone has attracted the attention of other Premier League clubs with his displays.

“It was a phenomenal save, an absolutely phenomenal save,” he told Football Insider.

“They are the ones you work on day in, day out in training but you rarely get to pull them off in a match.

“That was a match-winning save. It was as good as scoring the winning goal. You do not get as much credit for making saves but that is one of the best you will ever see.

“His footwork, his agility and positioning was world-class. A world-class save in the last minute of the game to get them the point.

“He has had a fantastic season. He is knocking on the door of an international call-up.

“I genuinely think he will stay in the Premier League if West Brom go down.”
