Glen Johnson Exclusive: Sterling And Aubameyang Great Signings

Former Chelsea defender Glen Johnson has hailed his old side’s summer transfer business, particularly the signings of Raheem Sterling and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Sterling arrives after seven successful seasons at Manchester City in which he won four Premier League titles, five League Cups and an FA Cup, scoring 131 goals for the club in all competitions. Aubameyang, meanwhile, spent just six months at Barcelona after joining them from Arsenal in January. The Gabonese striker hit 11 goals in just 18 LaLiga games and has 68 career Premier League goals to his name. Johnson feels that the pair are excellent acquisitions and is confident they will produce in front of goal, with Sterling already managing four strikes in eight matches for his new club.


Sterling, Aubameyang Great Signings

Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “I still don’t understand why Man City let Sterling go and let him go to Chelsea. 

“It’s great to see him doing well. He has hit the ground running and right now is Chelsea’s danger man.

“I think Aubameyang is a good signing [too]. If you get him happy, he’s going to score. Younger strikers are going to cost a hell of a lot and that’s why I think it’s quite a clever signing.

“He knows the league and loves living in London, if they can get him settled, he’ll get Chelsea a handful of goals this season.”

Kalidou Koulibaly Needs Time

Johnson also has faith in another new addition, 31-year-old Kalidou Koulibaly, who has had a mixed start to life at Chelsea.

“Koulibaly has got all the attributes to be a good centre-half for a few [more] years,” he said. 

“He had a good start but has been found out and made a few mistakes. 

“The potential is there, he just needs more time to understand the Premier League and realise there’s no such thing as an easy game.”

Chilwell Remains First Choice

Marc Cucurella is yet another new defensive recruit, having signed from Brighton and Hove Albion in the summer, but Johnson feels Ben Chilwell should remain first choice at left wing-back.

“I have always been a fan of Chilwell,” he said. “I like him going forward but Cucurella also looks like he’s really good on the ball.

“Cucurella is the more technical player and better on the ball, but I think I like Chilwell’s engine and the way he gets forward.

“I’d start with Chilwell.”
