Blackburn Rovers Player Profiles

Posted 13th July 2014 at 01:24 pm


A speedy left-footer who can play in defence or midfield, Markus joined Rovers in January 2012 after a successful trial, signing a two-and-a-half year deal.

The Swede started his footballing career at local side Högaborgs BK before making the move to top-flight club Halmstads BK where he went on to make 139 appearances, scoring on 17 occasions during four-year spell.

Capped at senior level with Sweden, strong displays for Rovers at left back at the end of the 2013-14 season saw Olsson earn a new one-year deal at Ewood Park.
