Robin Olsen Roma goalkeeper: Tough replacing Alisson
Published: November 1, 2018
Adopted from: tribalfootball.com
AS Roma goalkeeper Robin Olsen admits he’s found it difficult to replace Alisson.
Alisson left for Liverpool in the summer to be replaced by the Swede.
“It’s true, when I arrived there was a lot of pressure and attention on me, but that’s normal when you join a big club,” Olsen told the Giallorossi’s match programme.
“Roma had just sold a great goalkeeper like Alisson, and then I came in to replace him. I expected there to be a lot of pressure and I knew that I would have to show my ability out on the pitch.
“I am working hard every day, every minute, to show I have the quality required.
“The difference in football from where I come from and Italy is huge. It’s completely different, clearly Serie A is a far harder and better league – there is no comparison.
“Now I play with better players and against better players, it’s completely different.
“When I arrived it was all totally new; a new way of working, new techniques and methods. I needed a bit of time, I needed to settle in.
“On the pitch my Italian is getting better, I don’t have any issues talking to my teammates and making myself understood.
“I understand a bit more all the time; I’ve been here three months so clearly I can still improve a lot more, so I think slowly I will learn Italian to use day-to-day too.”
