Michael Johnson excited about Man City transformation

Manchester City midfielder Michael Johnson is desperate for a playing return.

The 22-year-old has not played since the Carling Cup tie at Scunthorpe last October after rupturing a cruciate knee ligament in training.

He is now on course to return to full training in the next couple of months and he is targeting a playing return, possibly by December.

"It will be great to play in a really good team. It's easy to forget that we were just a mid-table team not too long ago," he told City's website.

"We had some decent players, in fact some very good players, but as a team we were doing average. Now when you see the way we played against Liverpool (a 3-0 win) - things are just looking so good.

"It would be so easy to play in this team. Having those sort of quality players around you makes it easier."
