Johnson hoping to make Reds impression

Published Add your comment

New signing Glen Johnson is aiming to reproduce the form that won him an England recall last season as he eyes Premier League glory with Liverpool.

Reds manager Rafael Benitez signed the full-back from Portsmouth for a reported £17million following an impressive season on the south coast that saw Fabio Capello restore him to the national team after an absence of almost three years.

"I just want to play with the consistency I did last year and, hopefully, with the attacking play and the defensive side that I've improved on," he said. "I'd just like to be doing that week in, week out again."

He added: "They're (Liverpool) right up there with the world's best and they showed that by how close they came last season so a few minor errors that could be cut out and there will be massive improvements.

"It's a whole different club, the organisation and the professionalism of all the staff makes a difference."

Johnson is Benitez's only major signing of the summer to date as he plots to go one better than last season's runners-up finish in the Barclays Premier League.
