Fleetwood appoint Johnson as new boss

Fleetwood have appointed Lee Johnson as their new manager.

The 42-year-old former Bristol City and Sunderland boss, recently sacked by Hibernian, takes charge of the Cod Army a week on from them axing Scott Brown having made a winless start to the Sky Bet League One season.

Fleetwood sit second-bottom of the table with a single point from six matches, having lost each of their last five.

After spells managing Oldham and Barnsley, Johnson had just short of five years with Bristol City in the Championship before moving on in December 2020 to Sunderland, who he oversaw winning the EFL Trophy that season.

Sacked in January 2022, he was then appointed Hibernian boss four months later. Johnson guided Hibs to fifth place in the cinch Premiership last term, before being dismissed last month after they lost their first three league games this season.
