Glen McLeod Cooper Johnson is an England international football player who currently features for the English and European giants Liverpool. He is a versatile player who can play as a right back, centre-back or as a midfielder.
Johnson started his club career at London side West Ham United in 2001 and played for the Hammers for two seasons. He was signed by Chelsea in the summer of 2003 for a massive 6 million pounds but he failed to play regularly for the Blues.
Johnson made just 42 league appearances in his time at Stamford Bridge and played the 2006-2007 season on loan at Portsmouth. He was signed by Portsmouth on a permanent deal in the summer of 2006 on a four-year contract for 4 million pounds. His impressive performances for Pompey earned him a move to Liverpool in 2009.
Johnson has gone on to establish himself as one of the best right-backs in England while playing for the Merseysiders, making over 80 Premier League appearances for the Reds.
Johnson made his international debut for England in 2003 and has gone on to play more than 40 matches for his nation. He played for the Three Lions at the 2010 World Cup finals and Euro 2012.
