Ex-Wizard Eddie Johnson: US players not fully respected in England

LONDON — American players are still struggling to be respected in the English Premier League, U.S. forward Eddie Johnson said. Since joining Fulham from Major League Soccer's Kansas City Wizards in January 2008, Johnson has spent time on loan at second-tier club Cardiff and Greece's Aris. Johnson has yet to appear in a game for Fulham this season, but the 26-year-old Florida native can draw inspiration from Clint Dempsey, who has become one of the London club's stars since arriving at Craven Cottage in 2007.
