West Bromwich Albion forward Callum Robinson has admitted that the club’s fans as well as it’s work in the community are part of the reason why it is such a special team to play for.
The forward joined the Baggies in 2020 and has gone on to feature on a regular basis for the club in recent seasons.
However, despite producing some moments of quality in the top-flight, Robinson was unable to prevent his side from suffering relegation to the Championship last year.
In the current campaign, Robinson has managed to deliver a host of impressive performances for West Brom in the second-tier as he has scored five goals and has provided six assists for his team-mates in 23 appearances.
Having netted in the Baggies’ draw with Cardiff City last weekend, the Republic of Ireland international will be brimming with confidence heading into Saturday’s FA Cup clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.
Speaking on the latest episode of the Sky Sports EFL Podcast about what makes West Brom such a special team to represent, the 26-year-old said: “I just think the fan base and what the club does without the football, just the football, around the area and stuff and how much stuff they do and the fans do.
“How we try to support, obviously with Coronavirus it’s obviously been hard but I just think as a club, it’s a family club and it just feels nice.
“I’ve loved every minute of it.
“I probably say what’s special as well is the team, the team is such a great group of boys and we really enjoy coming in every day, even [though] the last year was tough for us, I still loved going in every day, it was never negative.
“So I probably say the group and the whole club in general, the fans and what we do as a community definitely.”
West Brom’s fans have stuck by their time through thick and thin in recent years and thus it is hardly a surprise that Robinson has mentioned them as being part of the reason for what makes the club so special.
Currently fourth in the Championship standings, the Baggies will need to turn to Robinson for inspiration if they are to secure an immediate return to the top-flight later this year.
The forward is more than capable of delivering the goods at this level and is averaging a respectable WhoScored match rating of 6.76 in the second-tier this season.
By maintaining his form as well as his fitness over the course of the coming months, Robinson could provide the club’s supporters with something to shout about as the Baggies look to launch a push for promotion.
