Mentally Strong, Technically Good. Olsen Conquers Roma

The Swedish goalkeeper is one of the best players of the Italian Serie A edition 2018-19. Olsen made an impact at Roma.

He joined the giallorossi to replace a Brazilian superstar and after a tough period he has changed his future in the eternal city.

Nowadays, Robin Olsen is the undisputed professional and moral winner of Di Francesco‘s group. A good guy able to impress everybody in the Italian capital. A reliable goalkeeper that makes the field speak thanks to his performance.

The Sweden international saved his side several times in the current campaign. His ball distribution has improved as well. Despite he has conceded 1.3 goals per game, but this number is strictly linked with the inefficiency of the Roma defensive phase, the viking has been one of the best Roma performers so far.

  • 18 Matches played;
  • 73% (3.4) Saves per game;
  • 4 Clean sheets;
  • 75% (21.9) Accurate passes per game.

Thanks to his physicality (height 6’6″), Robin Olsen is the undisputed master in the aerial duels. But his agility is surprising as well. His reactivity saved his teammates also in Parma when Luca Siligardi threw a bomb from close range deflected in corner by the Swedish hero.

Robin Olsen should be praised for his patience in enduring preventive criticism by the fans. He proved everybody wrong, this is his most important achievement so far.
