Liberia: Dulee Johnson Again - Loses Job

Liberian midfielder Dulee Johnson is no longer an AmaZulu player, having breached his contract according to the KZN club. Johnson only managed four appearances for the club since he signed at the start of this season.

Compounding his short stay was the fact that Usuthu struggled with his paperwork to get him onto the field.

Johnson's two-year contract was terminated with immediate effect after a disciplinary committee led by AmaZulu marketing manager, Lunga Sokhela, found Johnson to be in breach.

According to information, there has been an ongoing disciplinary procedure undertaken between the players and the club.

Absa Premiership side AmaZulu announced on Monday that they have terminated the contract of midfielder, Dulee Johnson due to the player's infringement of contract.

In a statement released by the Premiership strugglers, the Liberian's two year contract was terminated with immediate effect after a disciplinary committee led by marketing manager, Lunga Sokhela found the player to be in serious breach.

This is not the first time the midfielder has been spotted in such act but has been named in many controversies which have led to his contracts being terminated at club level over disciplinary procedure.

Late last year, Dutch outfit De Graafschap disengaged contract with Johnson after he was involved in a traffic offense when he refused to cooperate with the police when he was approached for a breathalyzer test, which is deemed a misdemeanor in European.

The police suspected that the Liberian was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident. Bearing in mind that it was not the first time Johnson was involved in an incident of such nature at the club, the Super Farmers decided to get rid of him.

The Liberian contract was also terminated by Swedish club AIK Solna for act incompatible with the club status and was also expelled by the late Liberian coach Bertalan Bicskei from the National team for misconduct.
