Aston Villa's Emery backs goalkeeper Olsen

Posted : 01 May 2024

Aston Villa manager Unai Emery expresses confidence in goalkeeper Robin Olsen as he prepares to step in for the suspended Emiliano Martinez in the Europa Conference League semifinal against Olympiakos.


 Martinez's absence, due to accumulation of yellow cards, coupled with a hamstring injury sustained in the previous match, opens the door for Olsen to showcase his abilities, despite conceding two goals in the recent draw against Chelsea, Olsen's vital save at the end demonstrated his value to the team.


Emery emphasizes the team's unwavering trust in Olsen's capabilities, highlighting his competitiveness in training and his past contributions whenever called upon.


With Martinez sidelined and other players like Youri Tielemans and Alex Moreno also unavailable, Villa must rely on Olsen's performance in this crucial European fixture while balancing their ambitions in the Premier League.


While acknowledging the Premier League's significance, Emery stresses the importance of competing in multiple competitions, aligning Villa's ambitions with those of successful teams like Real Madrid and Barcelona.


Emery's approach underscores Villa's commitment to both the Conference League and their pursuit of Champions League qualification, demonstrating a strategic balance between their priorities in domestic and European competitions.
