Liverpool boss Benitez wary of rushing back Johnson

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez says they'll be careful with the return from injury of England fullback Glen Johnson.

Benitez expects the England defender to be back in full training imminently.

"We don't have too many (problems)," Benitez told liverpoolfc.tv. "The players who played the other day are available. Everyone is ready apart from Johnson.

"Johnson is very close. I think next week he will be training with the team, or maybe at the end of the week, but it will be the same situation we have with Torres. He will need time and we will introduce him little by little."
