West Brom flop is two-goal Champions League hero

Malmo FF Badge

Former West Bromwich Albion striker Markus Rosenberg struck twice as Malmo beat Olympiakos.

Malmo beat Olympiakos 2-0 in Sweden last night, with Markus Rosenberg netting both goals.

The 32-year-old striker netted in each half to record a win over a Kostas Mitroglou led Greek side, which beat Atletico Madrid in their opening game.

Rosenberg is a former West Brom striker, who failed to score a single Premier League goal for the club after being bought by Steve Clarke in 2012.

He was released from his contract in February by the Baggies, and signed with Malmo a day later.

The Swedish international has been in good form since returning to his homeland, and his Champions League brace caps a remarkable turnaround.
