Johnson is more settled

Glen Johnson cannot wait for next season to start after signing a new deal with Liverpool.

The Reds defender struggled for form during Roy Hodgson’s ill-fated reign at Anfield last term but returned to his best under Kenny Dalglish. Johnson impressed while filling in at left-back and Dalglish was keen to reward the England international with an extended contract.

The 26-year-old said: “I’m very pleased. I’ve been here a couple of years and it’s great to be staying here for a few years longer now. For the club to want me to be here is a great feeling and I did not have to think twice about signing.

“I think I am improving all the time at Liverpool. You’re never too good to improve — and my aim is to just keep improving. With the squad we’ve got now, the backroom staff and the way things are going, things are looking positive.

“The club is looking to bring a few more players in, so the future is looking bright. We’ve made a couple of good signings already and with a few more we will be a right force in the coming season. I’m quietly confident about the new season. If we take it game by game I think we’ll do well.”
