Roma’s Olsen Chasing the 2018 Swedish Golden Ball

Robin Olsen | AS Roma

Roma keeper Olsen could win his first Swedish golden ball succeeding Granqvist and Ibrahimovic’s hegemony.

The prize will be delivered on November 12 and the Roma goalkeeper seems to be the favorite player ahead of Granqvist and Lindelof.

Although he passed through a tough period in the Italian capital, nowadays Robin Olsen has improved. The Swedish Viking seems to be a point of reference to Di Francesco‘s roster. His performances in the last month have been remarkable.

After having played a good World Cup in Russia with his national team, Olsen signed a contract with the giallorossi. His new adventure in the eternal city is giving him the possibility to test his skills in a very tough league.

Now, he has a real possibility to win the 2018 Swedish Golden Ball, as reported by the local newspaper Sport Bladet.

This is a very important award for the Swedes. Last year, Granqvist had ended Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s hegemony (10 years).

Although Granqvist is still a top candidate to receive the 2018 Swedish Golden Ball, reportedly Olsen or Lindelof should lift the trophy this year.

It would be a great achievement for the Roma goalkeeper.
