The performance of the Swedish goalkeeper is currently as good as that of the Brazilian. Olsen surprised everyone.
How many times did we say that Roma have lost one of the best goalkeepers in the world and nobody can replace him? The current situation in the Italian capital seems to be different.
When the Roma fans saw the Swedish viking arrive, many of them thought it was a joke of their sporting director. But only two months later, the passionate supporters of the Lupi began to appreciate his technical and temperamental skills.
Nowadays, Robin Olsen is not disappointing Monchi‘s expectations. Although the Sweden international did not have time to get used to the new environment, study the language, the team mechanisms, and the Italian championship, his average performance is as good as that of Alisson Becker, the beloved Roma keeper who moved to Liverpool FC last summer.
According to the Italian outlet La Roma 24, the average rating of Olsen, based on the rating given by the Italian sports newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, is 6.15. The Swedish viking has suffered 8 goals more than his famous colleague, but his multiple saves since the beginning of the 2018-19 campaign have protected the giallorossi from terrible KO.
Therefore, in his first two months of Italian football (10 matches), Robin Olsen made 32 saves, the same number of saves made by the Brazil international.
