Robin Olsen returned to England after Sheffield United completed his loan signing from AS Roma on deadline day.

The goalkeeper spent the previous term on loan at Everton and during his time with the Toffees, he and his family were robbed at their house.

FotbollDirekt interviewed the new Blades player, and he has now spoken about the incident.

“We are still processing that situation. We enjoyed ourselves very much in England. Such things can happen anywhere and it has not made us less like England – it can happen everywhere. We are still working on it and want to put it behind us. But it’s just nice to come back,” he said.

The keeper was linked to a handful of clubs throughout the summer window, but had to wait until the last day to get a move away from the Serie A side.

Olsen has now revealed the transfer talks started during Euro 2020, when he was with Sweden. A move to Sheffield United has helped him fulfil his wish.

“It was a wish I had (to play in England). Already last season when I was there, I got the feeling that this is where I want to play. And the family enjoyed themselves. So it was a great wish to come back,” the custodian explained.

“I am very happy that it was resolved in the end. The talk started already during the European Championships and there were rumours about clubs. But for me, the focus was to perform during the European Championships.”

The 31-year-old said his focus this season will be help Sheffield United return to the Premier League, a year after they were relegated from the top flight.

“I have two years left with Roma, it was probably their chance now to sell me and make good money. I do not want to go into which clubs negotiated with Roma,” Olsen stressed.

“I’m just happy and relieved that it worked out. Sheffield is a nice club that was in the PL and has the ambition to go up again. I want to be part of that journey.”
