Citizens Rocked By Johnson Injury

Citizens Rocked By Johnson Injury

Manchester City have released an official statement confirming that England U21 midfielder Michael Johnson is set to return to the treatment room after picking up a serious knee injury.

After recovering from a long term abdominal complaint that threatened his career and forced him out of the squad for around a year, this latest injury comes as a bitter blow for the talented youngster.

Mark Hughes commented on the bad news, saying on the official website: 'We are all disappointed for Michael, who has worked so hard to get back into first team contention.

'Unfortunately he might be out for the season but he will receive the best possible care and attention.'


Johnson had only recently returned to action, scoring in the Carling Cup against Championship side, Scunthorpe United.

On behalf of all City fans, we send our best wishes and hope to see him back in action as soon as possible.

What do you think about this latest blow for Johnson? Does Hughes need to dip into the market again in January to look for more cover? Have your say NOW. Register here and enjoy getting involved.

Like FCB - gutted for the lad, just hope it's not as serious as MH makes it out to be.

I feel really bad for him, he has had about as much luck as Bojinov. Hopefully Johnno can keep himself focused and come through the other side fitter and stronger.
