Discuss Glen Johnson»

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.

Away from the pitch, our new boy established the 'Glen Johnson Soccer School' in Dartford back in 2007 for children aged between four and 16.
