Glen Johnson is absolutely panned by Liverpool fans for display v Man United

Watching Glen Johnson play for Liverpool against Manchester United in Miami, you can understand why Brendan Rodgers is so keen on reinforcing the full back positions at Anfield.

By all accounts, Spaniards Javier Manquillo and Alberto Moreno will be brought in by Liverpool this week, giving Rodgers much more depth on both the right and left sides of defence.

Johnson played as the left back in Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester United in Miami on Monday and was woeful.

Martin Kelly was the designated right back, pushing Johnson over to the left, nevertheless the England full back had a woeful match.

Hours after Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester United, Glen Johnson was still trending on Twitter with Liverpool supporters irate about his performance in the friendly match.

The fact Johnson only has one year left on his contract cannot be helping his cause, but some of the vitriol is well out of order.
