Former Swedish-AIK Solna Liberian midfielder, Dulee Johnson has resumed club football action, after being set free from detention after being cleared of rape by a Swedish Court last year.
The Liberian was denied a contract continuation by the Swedish club, leaving him with no other option, but to find a new home. Dulee Johnson moved over to Greece where he secured a deal with Greek second division club, Panetolikos FC.
He joined the Greek club on a free transferr on Jan-21-2011 for an undisclosed amount believed to be a good sum of money. Dulee had his debut match for the club on Monday against Levadiakos FC which finished goalless.
According to report from Greece, the 26 year old Liberian midfielder came alive as he impressed fans with excellent ball control and passes during the game. Panetolikos FC is positing second on the table with 42 points from 20games. The club won 13 of their league matches, sharing points in three and losing four. The signing of the Liberian international is a perfect sign for Lone Star, as they travel to Cape Verde.
Alex Jackson Eyes Golden Boot
White City FC Liberian youthful attacker, Alex Jackson will continue to pursue the golden boot in the Carlsberg Cup preseason tournament in Australia. Since Alex arrived in Australia, he has managed to earned two golden boots for himself- one in the mock African Cup of Nation held every year under the auspices of the united African solidarity and one in the league.
Jackson started the tournament on a brilliant note when he netted two goals for White City as they dismantled Toros FC 2-0 in their first Group-2 match. The Liberian attacker comes alive on Friday against Cumberland United at the Franks Mitchell Park to honor their second game. According to Jackson, the league is full of great talents, but his vision will be realized at the end of the tournament.
“I am open to a call for national duty any time the Liberian football house is ready for me,” Jackson noted. Cumberland United is also holding three points from their first game against Western Adelaide FC (2 -0) at the Polonia Reserve park last week. White City is paired with Para Hills, Toros FC, Western Striker, Cumberland United and Western Adelaide FC.
Jeremiah Benson is another Liberian playing in the tournament with Para Hills FC. The young attacker was transferred from another top side called Salisbury United FC mid last year after a bright season. Para Hills lost their first game of the zone stage to Western Striker 2-0, making it a difficult starts for them. Benson said although the club wasted many chances provided from the middle, they are not frightened by the result, but will make the difference on Saturday as they clash with Toros FC who lost to the legs of Alex Jackson’s club, white City 2-0.
It is yet to be established whether Liberian youngster Tboy Kamara has joined his club, Salisbury United to play in the Carlsberg cup preseason tournament.
