Michael Johnson is a well-known and respected Midlands sporting hero

Michael Johnson is a well-known and respected Midlands sporting hero, making more than 550 appearances in the Football League and Premier League, including more than 250 games for Birmingham City and more than 100 each for Derby County and Notts County, the club where he began his professional career. Michael is also a full Jamaican international and played 12 times for the Jamaican National team.

He was a fans’ favourite at all his clubs and is now considered a legend of the sport. His most notable connections continue at Derby County and Birmingham City, where he picked up the nickname “Magic” (in reference to Earvin “Magic” Johnson, the American basketball player) for his often immense performances. During his career he was known as a quick and clever centre-half with a reputation for his incredible leap, which scored him a number of goals for his clubs.

After retiring as a player at the end of the 2008/09 season, he has worked as youth team manager and is a UEFA qualified coach, one of only 200 in the country. He also brings Sports Education programmes to schools and other educational institutions. Michael has become well known for standing up for his personal beliefs and is considered to be a role model in sporting circles.

Jon Weston (Managing director of Rudells) expressed his enthusiasm at having Michael become one of the team. “The role of ambassador is a very important one for Rudells, they need to represent the high standards and service that Rudells are dedicated to achieving. Michael is the epitome of these values and we are delighted to be working with him at our events and showcases throughout the year”.
