Johnson admits fitness worry

Published Add your comment

Manchester City midfielder Michael Johnson is hoping to be fit for Monday's trip to Newcastle after admitting his injury problems could be jeopardising his future at Eastlands.

The England Under-21 international has already missed six games this season with ongoing groin problems.

Johnson told City's official website: "I've been running and I've come through that without much of a problem so hopefully I'll be back any time after this international break."

He added: "The most important thing now is to stay injury-free because of all the things that are happening with the club.

"If you're not going to be playing and fit, then they're going to look somewhere else for someone who can do it.

"If I get fit and back into this team then hopefully I can have a good season, push on from last year and go for a higher-placed finish," the 20-year-old added.
