After his arrival in the summer, many Roma fans were skeptical about his possibility of success in replaceing Alisson, however Swedish keeper Robin Olsen proved many people wrong thanks to his good performances so far in a giallorossi shirt.
The ex-Copenaghen shot-stopper revealed how was his first impression with the new environment in an interview with Il Romanista: "Succeeding a great keeper like Alisson as Roma goalkeeper was not easy for me, I came from a smaller league and many didn't even know my name. I could feel the skepticism around me when I came. But I get it, I thought it was right, since I was replacing Alisson, a player that meant much for the club. Anyways, showing your value in such conditions is even better. Now I feel more confidence around me, the team always trusted me. I am also getting better with the language, I understand Italian but I can't speak it perfectly yet".
An episode that boosted Olsen confidence was the hug from De Rossi after the game against Torino: "It was very importnat for me. There was so much pressure on me, but I could feel it during the game that De Rossi was supporting me. Keeping a clean sheet on the debut was also important", concluded the goalkeeper.
