Olsson: West Brom can survive Ashworth departure

West Bromwich Albion defender Jonas Olsson says the club will survive the departure of Dan Ashworth.

West Bromwich Albion defender Jonas Olsson says the club will survive the departure of Dan Ashworth.

He believes the club’s impressive recruitment record means they can land a top notch sporting director when Ashworth leaves.

“He will leave a big space to fill,” Olsson told the Birmingham Mail. “But we have lost managers here and recovered.

“There was a big hole left after Roy(Hodgson) departed but the current gaffer has come in and done a brilliant job so far so I have faith the club will find the right man.

“Recruitment in the club, whether it is players, staff, or coaches, has been brilliant.”
