Liverpool fullback Johnson reveals Spanish house: And I'm learning the language too

Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson admits he's such a big fan of Spain he's bought a house there!

After buying a house in Spain, the 28-year-old England international enrolled on a course to improve his language ability - an obvious bonus around a group containing Portuguese and Spanish speakers.

"I've got a house in Spain so I like to try to make the effort and blend in a little bit, if possible," Johnson told Liverpoolfc.com.

"To be honest, I haven't had lessons for probably a year now. I did a course and that finished, but I can get by.

"I can get involved with the Spanish group so I guess it helps me out because I can mingle with pretty much everybody. I can understand the Scouse boys.

"Coutinho can speak a bit of Spanish as well; the lads that can't speak English can generally speak Spanish so we get by."
