EXCLUSIVE: A trip to Delhi slums a real eye opener for West Brom defender Jonas Olsson

“You feel a kind of guilt. Yeah, guilt, that’s probably a good word.”

He’s adamant he will return, adding: “It’s not just the poor people, it’s the people who are working out there. They are the unsung heroes. They are totally special people.

“This experience has stretched me. You kind of lose faith in humanity but then you don’t because you see so many people working out there trying to do good.

“I think I was quite good with my daughter before in terms of explaining that there were children in the world who didn’t have anything, but you do find yourself stressing that even more.

“I’ve always been a person who has a problem with the emphasis on having this particular car or those particular clothes.

“I’ve always had a problem with seeing a massive queue of people lining up for the latest iPhone. My feelings on that have just grown stronger.”


West Brom entertain Indian Super League side Delhi Dynamos on Saturday, September 3. Tickets are £5 with all profits going to charity.
