Johnson's City warning for starlets

Published Add your comment

Sunderland winger Adam Johnson claims experience has taught him that young players have little chance of breaking into the Manchester City team.

Johnson spent two-and-a-half seasons at the Etihad Stadium before leaving in the summer after his first-team opportunities became limited to substitute appearances.

"Now, if I was a young lad, I wouldn't go to City," he told several morning newspapers. "It is excellent when a club like City come for you. Hard to turn down. But you don't actually play for the champions - you're a squad member, which is totally different."
