Liberian footballer Dulee Johnson says he happy that the bad days are behind him and he is ready to move on with his career.

The 30 year-old-midfielder, who plays for Romanian first division side CSMS Iasi, said ” I am a totally different person today. For me the most important thing is to stay away from problems”.

He told Nordic Africa News in a telephone interview that he is very happy with the way things are now because the bad times are now in the past and ” I am looking forward to a good 2015.”

Johnson, a former Liberian international, whose career has seen him play in the top leagues in Sweden, Israel, Greece, Holland and South Africa, said he had a good first season in Romania and is hoping to make a move to a bigger club next year.

A delight to watch on the pitch, the midfielder’s career was plagued by numerous off-field incidents that took a toll.

“I know that my fans expect lot from me. I am working hard to get back to the level I was on.” he added.

The midfielder, who won the Swedish championship with AIK Solna, then offered his congratulations to James Debah for his recent appointment as headcoach of the Liberian national football team.

“Debah’s appointment is good for Liberia. He is a role model for young Liberian players and I am sure will make a positive contribution to Liberia.”
