AIK star Johnson remains upbeat despite Birmingham frustration

AIK Stockholm star Dulee Johnson refuses to give up on his dream of playing in the Premiership.

Johnson says he is not disturbed Birmingham City failed to reach an agreement with AIK after successful trials earlier this month.

DJ told his website, duleejohnson.com: "It's possible in football and I am not going to allow that to have an effect on me. Of course, I was a bit worried initially but life is full of surprises.

"I can't force anybody but I know that the appropriate time will come. I'm playing it cool. It pays to wait. At least the whole world knows that my inability to join the Blues was not as a result of my poor performance during the trials but because of disagreement over transfer fees." DJ added: "I'm still committed to AIK. Fans will NEVER be disappointed. They should expect the better side of Dulee in 2008.

"I call on my fans and country to cheer up and never give up yet. That's football you either win or lose. Let's look to the future and put the past behind."
