Glen Johnson Silenced His Critics With Brave Goal

 

Liverpool finally won a game at the weekend against Stoke City at Anfield, the win was the Reds first in over a month and the winning goal came from an unlikely source, Glen Johnson.

 

The England defender put his body on the line with an extremely brave headed goal which resulted in a bloodied head for the right-back as he reacted quickest to Lambert’s header rebounding off the crossbar.

 

Johnson has been severely criticised this season and most of last season for his lacklustre performances and he has been a target for most Liverpool supporters.

 

The speculation regarding Johnson’s future has not helped matters with his current contract running out next summer and Liverpool only offering a less valuable contract extension that the player is understandably unhappy with.

 

But regardless of Johnson’s future, Brendan Rodgers has continued to play the former Chelsea defender despite his poor performances that have bordered on Johnson looking like he can’t be bothered.

 

So the commitment from Johnson to go in where it hurts in the final few minutes of Saturday’s game was totally out of character from what we’ve seen and surprised many, but what a valuable goal it could turn out to be in the context of the rest of the season and maybe now we will see more commitment on a regular basis from Johnson if he wants an improved offer of a new contract by Liverpool.
