Glen Johnson believes Fenway Sports Group have transformed Liverpool with their actions and ambitions, a year on from seizing ownership of the famous club.

John W. Henry has backed Kenny Dalglish in the transfer market with significant funds, which saw the club's transfer record broken twice in quick succession last January.

The summer also heralded the arrivals of seven high-profile acquisitions as Dalglish was again allowed to spend freely to reinforce his squad.

Johnson, though, has had to take a back seat as the likes of Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing have adapted to life at Anfield, with the England defender restricted to only 10 minutes of first-team action this season.

However, the 27-year-old is well placed to offer his assessment of FSG, and is excited at what can be achieved under their Liverpool ownership.

"There has been a real transformation," Johnson told the Liverpool matchday programme.

"I'm very happy with how things have been going and I was pleased to sign a new contract in the summer.


"The owners have come in and pretty much done what they said they were going to do, which has been great news for everyone.

"I think they have given the fans back their belief and certainly in terms of the feeling amongst the players and the staff, the atmosphere has been very good.

"They broke the club's transfer record twice in January, which is just the kind of thing the fans wanted to see and was a real signal of intent. It is a very happy place at the moment."
