  1. It really is unfortunate the situation Aron Johansson finds himself in with Wolfsburg. We’re talking about a player that just a few years ago was looked at as our next big time striker. That injury he sustained before Rio for me was the start of his downfall with regards to injuries and not being able to properly regain full sharpness and subsequently it has left doubt as to whether he can ever be the same player again. Or it can be asked, did we overrate him as we have done with other promising young players over the years??
