Liverpool Ace Returns From Injury & Welcomes Competition

By on October 21, 2011

Liverpool defender Glen Johnson hopes to put his injury problems behind him after appearing in the friendly defeat to Rangers on Wednesday.

The defender has had a nightmare start to the season after being restricted to one appearance from the subs bench, during the defeat to stoke in September. But the England international came through an hour of action during the week, without any problems.

Johnson is now targeting a return to the first team for this weekend’s home clash with Norwich.

“It was just fantastic to be back playing again,” Johnson told the club’s official website. “Obviously I’ve been a long time out and it’s been a hard few months for me but fingers crossed I’m over all that now.

“The last two injuries were pretty much on the same spot and it’s been difficult to try to stay positive. I want to push on from this and we all want to get three points against Norwich.”

Martin Kelly has benefited from Johnson’s unhappy start filling in for defender at right-back, but Johnson is relishing competition on his return.

“Martin has done really well as have all the lads since I’ve been out and hopefully that will continue,” added Johnson.

“We’ve got good competition in every position and it’s good for the club.”
