Callum Robinson has won yet more praise following his excellent start to life in a West Brom shirt.
The Sheffield United forward made the move to the Baggies in the final week of January. After falling out of favour at Bramall Lane, Chris Wilder agreed to let his summer signing make the short-term move to Albion.
It is, however, very much expected that Robinson will return to Bramall Lane and play a key part next season. In the meantime, all he can do is impress for the Championship promotion chasers.
And after winning the praise of his new manager, Slaven Bilic, at the weekend, Robinson has come in for even more praise from his new captain.
“Callum was fantastic at the weekend. I thought Luton struggled to deal with him. Considering he hasn’t played 90 minutes for a while now, I thought he was fantastic,” Jake Livermore said. (WBA Official)
“We all need that little lift, added competition and diversity that new faces bring to the club.”
Robinson played his part in one of Albion’s goals against the Hatters. After being switched to a more accustomed wide-forward area, he completed a full 90-minute debut.
The £7m summer signing only scored one Premier League goal for United. However, he did contribute in other ways. It was Robinson’s cross that was turned into the net away at Chelsea, while at home to Manchester United, he kept his composure to set Oli McBurnie up.
Nothing to lose for Robinson or United
It’s fantastic to see Robinson get off to such a good start at West Brom. Impressing both your skipper and manager in one showing is quite the way to get your career going at a new club.
Robinson will be just fine under Bilic. West Brom plays expansive, attacking football. This will suit Robinson down to the ground, especially if he’s going to be used in the same position he was at the weekend.
Furthermore, Livermore added that he knows just what the likes of Robinson will bring to West Brom.
“I’ve played against them throughout the years and there’s definitely quality there that will add to our squad,” he added.
