Man City management rate fit-again Johnson like big-money signing

Manchester City management rate the return to full fitness of Michael Johnson like welcoming a new big-money signing.

Johnson is now fast-tracking his return to match-fitness after overcoming a long-term stomach injury.

City coach Eddie Niedzwiecki told the club's website: "He came on against Scunthorpe and scored that wonderful goal, and the boss and Mark Bowen are both of the opinion that for him to come back is like signing a multi-million-pound player.

"Michael is a quality footballer and the target is just for him to be playing games, working on his fitness and training day in, day out. He has missed that."
