Markus Olsson has reached a Blackburn milestone with him, like his brother Martin who of course also played for Rovers, knowing he’ll now make 100 or more appearances for the club.

Olsson has reflected on his time at Ewood Park, which didn’t even look like it would happen for him as it did his brother, who has since moved on with him now playing for Norwich.

The Olsson’s have both played 100, or more, games for Blackburn with Markus talking about his time at Ewood, which having been denied a deal when he joined Rovers on trial along with his brother as a 17-year-old under Mark Hughes he didn’t think this would happen!

Eventually it was Steve Kean that brought him in, so even though he admitted he didn’t even expect to ever sign for Blackburn let alone managed 100-matches but he’s glad did and the rest, as they say, is history….

Regarding his brother he, as you would imagine, misses playing at the same club as him and revealed Martin still talks about Blackburn a lot with him still very interested in the clubs progress. Ideally the two Swedes would both still be at Rovers but Markus knows ‘that’s how it is in football.’

Also spoke about was the fact the defender is happy to be back in Gary Bowyer’s team, with the competition for places driving him on with him happy to play wherever he plays, defence or midfield as long as he plays!

It was in midfield he played against Hull recently.

Goals are something, playing in midfield will certainly help, he could get more of he feels and that would be his aim having last scored for Blackburn in Jordon Rhodes’ first game for the club, with Rhodes of course marking his 150th appearance last weekend! Oh, and with a goal!
