Bolton Wanderers manager Gary Megson has warned striker Johan Elmander he must toughen up to succeed in the Premiership, with his international manager leaping to his defence.

Mark Davies' goal in the Carling Cup is the only for Bolton in competitive matches this season and the Swede has failed to score in 21 games.


Megson told Sky: "He has to accept there is a physical contact in this country and he has got to deal with it.

"He's decent in the air without being Kevin Davies, has pace and he's 6ft 2in and built really strongly so I think he has all the pre-requisites to do it in England," he re-affirmed.

Megson did concede: "But I know Johan has got a decent goalscoring record and a fantastic amount of ability."

The comments forced Swedish national team assisstant Roland Andersson to say: "We all know how hard he works and that he scored for us last game."
