Ex-Liverpool, Chelsea fullback Johnson retires

Glen Johnson has announced his retirement from football.

The fullback has been a free agent since finishing his third season with Stoke City in May.

The 34-year-old has enjoyed a fruitful career, which included spells at Chelsea, Liverpool and Portsmouth.

He told talkSPORT on Monday: "Today is the day I'm officially saying I've retired.

"I knew halfway through last season I was going to call it a day. I always wanted to retire at an age where my body still felt good."
