Liverpool defender Glen Johnson’s frustration at a disappointing season for the club have boiled over in a Twitter tirade against Paul Merson, the former Arsenal midfielder turned TV pundit.
Merson questioned the attitude of Johnson recently as a Sky Sports program discussed Saturday’s departure of Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson.
But Johnson hit back on Twitter by referring to Merson’s addiction to alcohol, cocaine and gambling in the 1990s.
Johnson wrote: “Comments from alcoholic drug abusers are not really gonna upset me and who is Paul Merson to judge players.”
In comments later deleted from Twitter, the England defender added: “The only reason he’s on that show is coz he gambled all his money away. The clown!” (Sports Illustrated)
Whilst Glen Johnson may have a point it is probably not the best idea to use Twitter to go on the offensive, unless of course your Robbie Savage in which case it’s actually quite amusing. The Liverpool full back has been pretty damn poor this season so Paul Merson’s comments in relation to the England man are pretty fair but it would’ve been wiser for Johnson to have not been so public in his ire.
Is Paul Merson on Twitter? If so It would be amusing to see what he tweeted back.
