Amazulu discard returns to Sweden



AmaZulu discard Dulee Johnson has returned to Sweden to sign with a second division club, but only on condition he cleans up his act and undergoes treatment for alcohol addiction.

Johnson’s drunk behaviour saw him sacked by the Durban club in November, just months after they had signed the Liberian international as one of their five foreign picks for the Premier Soccer League season.

Johnson had arrived in the Premier Soccer League with a highly rated pedigree, including playing for Swedish champions AIK Stockholm, but also with an alcohol addiction problem, which flared up during his brief time with AmaZulu.

He also had spells in Greece, Israel and the Netherlands cut short because of disciplinary problems that were as a result of his drunken ways.

The 28-year-old has now signed to play at IK Brage this coming season but must undergo medical treatment for his addiction.

“Previously I have lied to myself that I didn't have a problem,” he told reporters in Sweden.

“"It has caused problems in the other clubs I have played in but now I've decided to get the help I need."

"Dulee himself has realised he has a problem but he has been able to deliver on the pitch," IK Brage chairman Tommy Andersson said.

"We have signed a contract between IK Brage, Nudax Rehab and Dulee ... a three-sided deal for treatment over two years."
