JOHNSON ON HIS WAY OUT
Former Birmingham City defender Roger Johnson's future at Wolverhampton Wanderers after it was revealed that the club are considering selling him in the summer.
Roger Johnson was signed for £ 4.5 million by Wolves in the summer. He was made captain of the team by then manager Mick McCarthy.
However, he recently turned up for the training in the worst possible fashion. Alcohol is said to have played a major role in Roger Johnson's recent misdemeanour.
Following the incident, Roger Johnson has been informed that he will be fined up to £ 50,000 – two weeks wages. Further inquest has been ordered into the incident.
This is definitely not the kind of PR that Wolves need right now. They're struggling down in the relegation zone of the Premier league. The sudden sacking of Mick McCarthy drew intense criticism from the media. The 5-0 defeat at the hands of Fulham during the weekend proved that the sacking of Mick McCarthy was the worst possible decision Wolves could have taken at this stage of the season.
Following the sacking of Mick McCarthy, Wolves announced that they would be appointing a permanent manager, but they appointed a caretaker manager instead. All the happenings around Roger Johnson seems to have affected as well.
“It had better be a one-off. He has done it once and he has been punished for it. He won’t want to be doing that again. If any player did that I would be disappointed. Roger knows his responsibilities, he knows he’s club captain. It was out of character and it was out of order to do it, to come in and not be fit to train," Wolves manager Connor said regarding the Roger Johnson incident. Despite the incident, Roger Johnson still continues to be the captain of Wolves.
