Icelandic-American Aron Johannson
is enjoying his best run in more than five years.
He scored in Hammarby's 2-2 tie with Helsingborg on Sunday to give him six goals over the last
five weeks. Hammarby is unbeaten in the five games Johannson scored to climb into sixth place in the 16-team Allsvenskan.
Johanson parlayed his sucess at Danish club AGF (21 goals in 48
Superliga games) and Dutch club AZ (29 goals in 60 Eredivisie games) and his selection to the 2014 U.S. World Cup team into a move to German club Werder Bremen, but he scored only four goals and made
only 28 appearances in four Bundesliga seasons.
An adductor injury and hip problems in Johannsson's first season at Bremen set him back after arriving from AZ for a transfer fee
estimated to be 5 million euros. An ankle injury in his final season in Germany limited him to a single three-minute appearance in his farewell game.
He moved to Hammarby in 2019 but
didn't score in his first season. His first goal in August ended a string of 18 games without a Allsvenskan goal.
