West Bromwich Albion defender Jonas Olsson has told the Swedish media he wants to get to Wembley in what looks like his last season with the club. Yesterday we covered comments the Swede made when he said it’s unlikely he will extend his contract with the Premier League side.
In an interview with HD.se the West Brom star was asked if he had any regrets in his career, and whether he still had any aims. Olsson said he doesn’t look back into the past, but one thing he would like to do is to be part of a West Brom side which gets to Wembley.
The former Sweden international went on to say once his motivation has gone he will quit the game, but won’t dwell on things he didn’t achieve.
“It would be a nice finish to get to Wembley with West Brom. We need to at least get to the semi-finals of the FA Cup. Otherwise, I don’t think about nostalgia. Once the motivation has gone, and my career is over, I will not feel any resentment or think I haven’t achieved something,” said the West Brom player.
Olsson has just six months left on his current West Brom deal, and with the player falling out of favour with manager Tony Pulis a move in the summer looks on the cards.
The central defender has spoken about a desire to play in Italy, and hasn’t ruled out the option of returning to play in his home country.
