Welcome home Jonas Olsson

THERE will be a warm welcome back to the Big Swede at The Hawthorns on Sunday!

Yes, as if Albion’s tilt at Manchester United was not enough to fill The Hawthorns, there will be the chance at last to say ‘hello goodbye’ to Jonas Olsson.

Our much-loved giant defender departed in March after nine years and more than 260 appearances in the blue and white stripes he came to love.

Prior to securing European qualification with new club Djurgarden, Olsson promised to one day return to offer his own thanks to the Baggies faithful.

And on Sunday, he will be at The Hawthorns as our very special Fans’ Champion and be introduced one more time to The Hawthorns faithful shortly before kick-off.

Before that, Jonas will also pop into the Fanzone and take part in a live Q&A on stage.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” said Jonas. “I never got the chance to say my farewell to the fans when I left and that was something I regretted. The timing just made it impossible.

“It will be great to see The Hawthorns again - this club is forever special to me and I just want to say thank you to everyone.

“And most of all I want to see my old mates win! I am hearing good things about the performance at Liverpool and I think they are more than capable."
