His contribution to Albionâ€™s midfield â€“ sitting in front of the back four â€“ has benefitted the Baggiesâ€™ defence but also complemented other around him, notably Youssouf Mulumbu, who has flourished.
â€śHe has been top class for us,â€ť said Swedish international Olsson told the Birmingham Mail.
â€śI donâ€™t think it is only that, there is so much more.
â€śHis ability on the ball is very good as well.
â€śWith him and Youssouf (Mulumbu) also sitting in front of us it is a big help to the defence.
â€śHe has been brilliant and that is credit to the coaches and scouting staff, finding such a good player and on a free â€“ that is incredible.
â€śFor a player to come from South America and adapt to the game so quickly is remarkable.â€ť
