Soccerstarz - Liverpool Glen Johnson - Home Kit
England international Glen Johnson is an attacking right-back who arrived at Anfield in June 2009. Johnson established himself as one of the Premier League's top full-backs in the years prior to his big money move to Merseyside and he is an integral part of the national team under Fabio Capello. His career began with Harry Redknapp at West Ham but after just 15 appearances and a loan spell at Millwall he became the first signing for new Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich in 2003. The Londoner's league debut for the Blues arrived at Anfield in August of the same year.
Three months later came an international bow against Denmark as a substitute for Gary Neville. Johnson won the Premier League and League Cup during his time at Stamford Bridge but was loaned by Jose Mourinho to Portsmouth in 2006. The deal was made permanent a year later and the England man went on to be a massive hit with the Fratton Park faithful. He helped the club to FA Cup glory in 2008 - and the season that followed brought a host of personal accolades. Despite Portsmouth finishing 14th in the league, Johnson was selected at right-back in the PFA Team of the Year for 2008-09. His screaming left-foot volley against Hull on November 22 also won Match of the Day's Goal of the Season.
A summer move to Merseyside followed, with his debut arriving at White Hart Lane on August 16, 2009. Three days later came Johnson's first goal, an acrobatic volley in a 4-0 thrashing of Stoke. The defender would score twice more during 2009-10, a campaign which ended with a trip to the World Cup in South Africa. He started every game as England crashed out in the last 16 to Germany. Injuries punctuated 2010-11 but Johnson's form following the return of Kenny Dalglish proved to any remaining doubters that both the attacking and defensive sides of his game were top drawer. His willingness to operate at left-back was also crucial as the King masterminded an Anfield revival after a turbulent spell under Roy Hodgson. Away from the pitch, our No.2 established the 'Glen Johnson Soccer School' in Dartford back in 2007 for children aged between four and 16.
