Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson has had a new dig at Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho.

Johnson didn't see eye-to-eye with the Special One when they were together at Chelsea.

He told the Daily Star: “He just wouldn’t play me. I asked him when I was going to get a chance and he wasn’t honest.

“Three games before Barcelona he said I was in on merit and if I played well I would keep the shirt. I played against Villa and got man of the match.

“He couldn’t drop me against Middlesbrough and I got man of the match again. I said to my agent I would not play in the next game because had I played well a third time he would have had to keep me in against Barcelona and didn’t want that.

“I was dropped. I knew in my heart he wanted Paulo Ferreira in. It was a kick in the b****. I knew I had no future. My trust and belief had gone and he said nothing to me when I left for Portsmouth.

“I don’t hold a grudge. In a way I’m grateful because I wouldn’t be here without that.”
