Johnson faces three-month lay-off

Published Add your comment

Roberto Mancini has confirmed that Manchester City winger Adam Johnson will be ruled out for three months with an ankle injury.

Johnson suffered ligament damage in a freak incident during training on Thursday and scans have confirmed Mancini's worst fears.

"We have lost Adam Johnson for three months," said Mancini. "This will be a very big problem because he is an important player. The injury is like the one Aleksandar Kolarov had earlier this season. We do not have another player like Adam."
