Olsson hails Hodgson impact

Hodgson, who replaced Roberto Di Matteo last month, will face his

former side Liverpool at The Hawthorns on Saturday with West Brom

just one point above the relegation zone. And 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.”
