Desc Glen Johnson’s time at Anfield feels an age away, but for half of the decade he was a big part of the Reds’ defence. Signed from Portsmouth by Rafa Benitez in 2009, the England international stayed at the top while his former team-mates dropped down the football pyramid. The former Chelsea and West Ham man played 143 of his 160 Premier League games for Liverpool in the 2010s and represented England at two World Cups while on the club’s books

[Glen Johnson, who worked under the former Manchester United boss at Stamford Bridge, expects a proven winner to take another job after Christmas] Jose Mourinho is sitting in the shadows at the moment. He’s being patient and things change so quickly in football where a job that seems secure now, might not be in two months time

Arsenal and Tottenham are the two places where the doors could be open sooner but I don’t think I could see him at Arsenal. He’ll wait for it to unfold over Christmas and perhaps he’ll cherry-pick after that. But I don’t think he’s the type to rush and get a job just for the sake of getting one

[According to one of the club’s former defenders Glen Johnson, Ben Chilwell would be an ideal signing for Chelsea and connect with manager Frank Lampard] I’ve said many times I am a fan of Chilwell, I like the way he carries himself. You don’t really hear him unless it’s football related, which I like, and I think he’s the sort of player Lamps would connect with. He’s the sort of out-and-out left-back they haven’t had for a while. I know Ashley Cole was irreplaceable, but in terms of a natural, solid left-back, they haven’t had one for a while and I think he’ll do very well. Marcos Alonso is a fantastic player, but I don’t think he is a solid natural left-back

[Former Chelsea defender Glen Johnson has urged his old club to continue their pursuit of Ben Chilwell, claiming that the Leicester star represents an improvement at left-back] I’ve said many times I am a fan of Chilwell. I like the way he carries himself. You don’t really hear him unless it’s football related which I like, and I think he’s the sort of player Lamps [Frank Lampard] would connect with. He’s the sort of out-and-out left-back they haven’t had for a while. I know Ashley Cole was irreplaceable, but in terms of a natural, solid left-back, they haven’t had one for a while and I think he’ll do very well

[Marcos Alonso is the current occupant of the left-back spot, but Johnson believes that the Leicester man is more suited to the position] Alonso is a fantastic player. But I don’t think he’s a solid natural left-back. There’s no doubt he is a wonderful footballer but Chilwell is a natural full-back. It’s a hefty price tag, there’s no doubting that, but if [Chelsea] can get a deal for him that is reasonable then he’s a player they should try to get.

[It will cost £20m-plus to replace Willian, so keep him!] I still think he’s a top player. Those sort of players, those players with that level of professionalism, they are hard to replace. Financially, business-wise, trying to replace Willian – how much is that going to cost? You are going to let a top player walk out of the door for nothing. It’s going to cost you a good £20m to replace him. I’d definitely like to see him stay there for another year
