Sven’s back­ing jinxed Johnno

CARDIFF v LE­ICES­TER

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.”
