Johnson happy to make Fulham move

Eddie Johnson is delighted with his move to Fulham.

The USA international striker signed for Fulham last month from Kansas City Wizards and told fulhamfc.com: "It was a dream come true to make the move to the Premier League.

"To have moved over here and already know some guys from the American national team has made it all the more wonderful for me. I am really excited to get going, it is, without doubt, the best league in the world and I feel that I am part of a great team here at Fulham.

"Every day is a big challenge; nothing over here is guaranteed to you as a player. You have to prove yourself on a daily basis and I think that is one of the major differences from the MLS. No one is different from another guy in the squad, there is no special treatment or perceived level of status, you are rewarded with how you train and play in games and that's how it should be.

"The coach treats everyone equally in terms of his expectations and demands, which are very high and I know I have to work hard to match these, which I am willing to do."
