West Brom Going to Utilize Branislav Ivanovic’s Skills
English Premier League is going to witness the comeback of Branislav Ivanovic as he is going to be the guard of West Brom's goal-post for this season. The former Chelsea campaigner has signed for West Brom United this year as the club has got promoted to the 2020-21 Premier League session. The Serbian defender appeared for the highest number of matches in his career for Chelsea of 261 and has put the ball into the net 22 times.
He was the faithful soldier of Zenit Saint Petersburg since 2017 and appeared in 90m matches for them. He not only has a wide experience of playing for the clubs but holds the record to appear for 105 times for Serbia.
Branislav Ivanovic played with Chelsea for 9 long years and during this time he has achieved great heights in his career. He got the test to win 3 FA cup trophies. As a reporter asked about his motivation to play for the new team, he replied with some awesome words. He wanted to challenge himself as he wanted to see how much football is left in him at the age of 36. His records say that he can play throughout the ground. Though he is mainly a right back, it is also true that he scores goals when his team needs it.
According to West Brom manager Slaven Bilic, Ivanovic will bring experience to his team. His primary target will be to retain the place in Premier League and then they will go for the championship. As the inaugural match for the West Brom United didn’t give them the expected result, and they lost to Leicester by 3 goals to nil, they are now hoping that Ivanovic will hold the anchor for them and will take West Brom to a better season for the rest of the tournament.
