Liverpool’s Glen Johnson hands the Reds injury boost
Liverpool defender Glen Johnson reveals he will return to first-team training on Tuesday after recovering from an ankle injury
Glen Johnson reveals that he will return to first-team training at Liverpool on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old has been out-of-action with an ankle injury since hobbling off in Liverpool’s 1-0 victory over Manchester United in September.
Johnson was initially expected to miss up to 10 weeks, however the England international has made a quicker recovery than initially expected.
6 weeks of hard work has paid off…. Back with the team on Tuesday…. #Finally

Earlier this week, former Liverpool defender Rob Jones backed Martin Kelly to make a successful return to the first-team fold following his recovery from an interior cruciate ligament injury which the right-back suffered in September 2012.
“It’s a pity he got an injury. He was playing really well,” Jones said.
“He was confident – running up and down that wing and getting back and defending. So, it’s a pity that he got the injury.
“But now he’s just got to get himself fit and play as many games as he can under his belt.
“I know he played for the Under-21s the other week and got a good run out. It’s hard coming back from long-term injuries.”
