Robin Olsen’s future was clearly away from the Serie A side after returning from his loan spell at Everton.
The goalkeeper had to wait until the last day of the window to complete a loan move to Sheffield United. He also got his temporary move to the Merseyside club on deadline day of the 2020 summer transfer window.
Olsen is currently with Sweden, preparing for their international fixtures against Spain, Uzbekistan and Greece.
Emil Forsberg was next to the keeper in the national team camp when the 31-year-old got his last two transfers [to Everton and Sheffield United] sorted out.
Ahead of Sweden’s clash against Spain, the RB Leipzig midfielder spoke to reporters, and was quizzed about Olsen’s latest move to the Championship side.
“It was action, that’s how it is on deadline day. It finally worked out, I am extremely happy for Robin’s sake,” Forsberg said, as quoted by Aftonbladet.
When further pressed if the custodian was happy with the late move to Sheffield United, his national teammate said: “Absolutely. We went to bed right after, so there was not much time to celebrate…”
Sweden manager Janne Andersson also gave his verdict on Olsen’s loan move to Bramall Lane.
“I think it’s good because it feels like he will get a lot of playing time and it’s important,” Andersson said.
“I haven’t had time to talk to Robin about it either, because it was late last night and we’ve been training.
“But of course, I assume he wanted this. It is basically about going to a club where he gets to play and then I assume that he is satisfied with the circumstances.”
