Sven’s backing jinxed Johnno
CARDIFF v LEICESTER
SVEN GORAN ERIKSSON is ready to unleash Michael Johnson tonight – for only his second appearance in nearly TWO YEARS.
On-loan Manchester City star Johnson made his Leicester debut in the second round Carling Cup clash at Rotherham.
And Foxes boss Eriksson insists the 23-year-old could have been an England regular if he had not suffered such an awful run of injuries.
“I am convinced that Michael will be an asset for us this season and will put his injuries behind him,” said Eriksson.
“He will work hard for us and play well.”
