Olsson impressed with new West Brom boss Hodgson

Jonas Olsson claims new boss Roy Hodgson has turned things around since his arrival in February. Hodgson will face his former side Liverpool at The Hawthorns on Saturday with West Bromwich Albion just one point above the relegation zone.

The Swedish defender told the Birmingham Mail: "He is unbeaten since he's arrived and has done a brilliant job so far.

"All of the players are on board with him and taking in his ideas.

"He's only had five or so weeks yet we are already seeing the results from the changes he's made.

"If we can just stay up this year and have a whole pre-season with this gaffer then we'll have some very promising times ahead.

"We had struggled with organisation, the shape of the team and doing our jobs as a unit, especially the defence. That's what's been highlighted the most since he came.

"We've been working 11 against 11, using the big pitch, working on game situations. We are more solid than we were."
