New Seattle Sounders striker Eddie Johnson has revealed what happened in his failed move to Mexican club Puebla FC.

The former Fulham man became a Sounders player late last week, about two months after reportedly joining Puebla, but he has come clean about the botched dealings with the Mexicans.

"There were a lots of events going on under the table that I didn't know anything about, that I wasn't told," Johnson said.

"The club said I didn't pass my physical; I never took a physical. Then they said that I was unfit, but I trained in every training session and I did well, and the coach was happy with the way I trained.

"In the end, you live and you learn. It was a learning experience for me. Where I was in my career at the time, trying to get my career back on track, it didn't look good for me. But that's the truth in a nutshell. ... Those people out there that know the truth, know the truth."
