The Mercurial Eddie Johnson Uncovered

ESPN writer Jeff Carlisle profiles current DC United forward, and ex-Seattle Sounder, Eddie Johnson. Always an enigma, and viewed as a Balotelli-like wild child, EJ tries to shed the label of being a trouble maker. As a player whose career started so brightly – earning a trip over to the EPL with Fulham – EJ’s career has been up and down having played for 4 or so MLS teams. He’s played in the EPL, the Greek League and MLS in his career, and just coming to find his place in the USMNT side ahead of the World Cup in Brazil. Johnson has always seemed to be buddies with fellow national team member, Clint Dempsey, yet the money that Seattle gave to Dempsey might have been what pushed EJ past his breaking point. A solid reach for any USMNT soccer fan.
