Ian Wright puts a price on Norwich winner

Martin Olsson scored a late winner for Norwich City against Newcastle United in the Premier League at the weekend.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has suggested in The Sun that Martin Olsson’s goal for Norwich City against Newcastle United could be decisive in their attempt to retain their Premier League status for next season.

Norwich got the better of Newcastle 3-2 at home in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

In what proved to be a hugely entertaining game at Carrow Road, defender Olsson scored in the third minute of injury time to help the home team pick up all three points.

The win against Newcastle has enhanced the Canaries’ chances of surviving in the Premier League.

Former Arsenal striker Wright has suggested in The Sun that the 27-year-old Sweden international left-back’s goal against Newcastle could prove to be worth £100 million.

“By his own admission, the Swede scores so infrequently that he doesn’t even know how to celebrate properly,” Wright wrote in The Sun. “Yet he managed it well enough at Carrow Road.

“No wonder, either. If it helps keep the Canaries up, the new TV deal means that goal could be worth £100m. Put it like that, and it’s been well worth the wait!”

Norwich do not have a great squad, and just a few weeks ago they looked like they were going down to the Championship.

Recent performances and results have been very positive, and it now appears very likely that Alex Neil’s side will stay up at the expense of Sunderland and Newcastle United.
