Former fox retires, heart condition reason for sudden career stop

DATE: 25.04.2018 - THE CUNNING FOX - BLOG

 

Former Leicester City defender Nils Eric Johansson has retired from the game. He made his decission in February due to a heart condition that made it difficult to continue

According to Swedish website Fotbollskanalen, Johansson never really looked forward to the day when he knew it was over. Since taking the decission back in February he has been in and around the team to be part of the dressing room.

Johansson left Leicester in 2007 and has for the last eleven years played for AIK Stockholm. He played a total of 297 league games in which he scored 16 goals. "Nisse"  turned 38 years of age in January and the career was one to look back on with great pride.

He joined Leicester from Blackburn and before his time in England he enjoyed spells with Bayern Munich and Nurenberg. He moved to the Bundesliga in his teens and made his full international debut for Sweden at the age of 22, but the number of caps stopped on three.

Before joining Leicester he had a good spell at Ewood Park, being in the 2002 EFL Cup winning line-up. He also picked up a number of different cup and league medals while at Bayern Munich and a Bundesliga 2 winners medal with Nurenberg.

His move back to AIK was probably not a step down, looking at his trophy cabinet. Winning the Swedish League and Cup in 2009, and the Supercup in 2010. Nils Eric Johansson has been loyal to AIK and will be seen as a great player in history of the club.

He has not yet decided what he will do next, and if AIK asks him to stay on at the club in another role, that would probably be something to consider.

Nils Eric Johansson is one of a few former Swedish players to have played for Leicester City. Other's are Pontus Kamark and Patrik Gerrbrand, Gerrbrand played together with Johansson during his time at the club.

Pontus Kamark will forever be the player of the three to get the best grade after his fantastic man marking of Juninho in the 1997 League Cup final, but Nils Erik Johansson is the one with most league appearances for Leicester, playing 75, while Kamark stopped at 65.

Johansson could operate at a full back position and in the centre of defence and was looked up on as a hard battling, honest defender with a great tackle and also a good header of the ball. His only league goal for Leicester was socred in a 1-0 away win v. Preston in April 2007.
