Johnson turns to yoga

Published Add your comment

Manchester City midfielder Michael Johnson is having yoga sessions in a bid to cure his nagging pelvic problems.

Johnson, who signed a new five-year contract last month, has made just 36 league starts in two years since he made his debut.

In that time the 20-year-old has not managed a run of more than 10 consecutive Premier League games in one campaign and manager Mark Hughes told the Manchester Evening News: "He is still having problems with pain and has not been training with the main group. We are trying to look at all avenues in an effort to settle the problem down."

He added: "For quite some time now, he has had pain and irritation from that area which at times has really hampered him - and on other occasions he has been able to manage.

"Everything is geared to getting Michael fit and well and being able to play and managing the level of pain that he is having at the moment.

"We hope the breaks in the season for internationals will allow us to take him out of the firing line somewhat."
