Biography

Robin Olsen (born 8 January 1990) is a Swedish professional footballer of Danish descent who plays for F.C. Copenhagen as a goalkeeper. The goalie started his career at the youth ranks of Malmö, but didn't linger there in wait for a first team opportunity. He chose to switch to the academies of BK Olympic, renowned in Sweden for nursing talent. At the age of 16 he got his first transfer to IF Limhamn Bunkeflo and made his debut in the second tier of Swedish football, a year later.

Biography

Club career

Olsen made his Allsvenskan debut for Malmö FF on 1 October 2012 in an away fixture against Syrianska FC when first choice goalkeeper Johan Dahlin was suspended. Olsen kept a clean sheet as the match ended 2–0 in Malmö's favour. In the match on 5 April 2013 against Åtvidabergs FF Dahlin had to be substituted at half time for an injury and Olsen once again took his place. Olsen then managed to hold a clean sheet in the remaining part of the match as well as a further three matches before conceding a goal in stoppage time in his fourth match of the season in the away fixture against IFK Göteborg. Olsen kept Dahlin out of the starting eleven for some further matches before he was given the place on the bench once again. In total Olsen played 10 matches for Malmö FF during the league title winning 2013 season, an unusual feat for a second choice goalkeeper. Previously to the start of the 2014 season the club sold Johan Dahlin, making Olsen the first choice goalkeeper. In the 2014 season Olsen made 29 out of 30 league appearances and was a vital piece of the team that defended the clubs league title and qualified for the group stage of the 2014–15 UEFA Champions League. For his performances in the league Olsen was awarded Allsvenskan goalkeeper of the year. He was also nominated for Swedish goalkeeper of the year at Fotbollsgalan.

On 1 July 2015, it was announced that Olsen would continue his career at PAOK FC signing a four years contract, for nearly a €650,000 transfer from Malmö.

On 26 January 2016, it was announced that Olsen would continue his career at F.C. Copenhagen on loan from PAOK FC for 6 months. According to F.C. Copenhagen's manager Ståle Solbakken the Danish team was in search for a goalkeeper due to the injury of Stephan Andersen. The performances of 26-year-old international in Super League and Europa League until January were below average, but he retained his good form since he joined the Danish club and increased his chances to be included in Sweden National Team's squad ahead of Euro 2016.As a consequence of his performance F.C. Copenhagen wants to make the loan move permanent.

On 24 May 2016, it was announced that Olsen would continue his career at F.C. Copenhagen signing a four years contract, for nearly a €600,000 transfer from PAOK FC.
