Liverpool fans react to Glen Johnson’s retirement

Glen Johnson has announced his retirement from football, following an appearance on talkSPORT.

The former England full-back won 54 caps for his country – travelling to the 2010 and 2014 World Cups, as well as Euro 2012 – and played for seven clubs across a career spanning 16 years.

Johnson began his career at West Ham United and took in a loan spell with Millwall during his time at Upton Park.

A move to Chelsea followed in 2003 – he joined the club in the summer that Roman Abramovich injected a huge amount of cash into the Blues’ coffers – before a spell with Portsmouth, initially on loan, began in 2006.

That deal was made permanent in 2007 and he spent a further two years at Fratton Park, prior to being snapped up by Liverpool in 2009.

Johnson won the League Cup at Anfield and became a key member of the first-team squad, spending a total of six years on Merseyside.

He finished his career with Stoke City, playing for the Potters between 2015 and 2018. He was released by the club at the end of the 2017-18 season and has been unattached since.

Prior to his move to Liverpool, the right-back had previously never stayed at a club as a senior player for longer than four years, and his retirement has prompted an outpouring of affection from Reds fans on Twitter.
