Glen Johnson has praised Harry Redknapp for raising his confidence and has explained why he joined Pompey from Chelsea.
'I had a couple of years not playing, so this season is massive for me. I just wanted to play. At Chelsea, I just had to keep my head strong. It was difficult coming in for the odd game. You're not as confident as you might be when you're starting one game in six.
'You can't describe your feelings when you're not playing. You're down. You're not yourself. You get the hump.
'But Harry Redknapp told me if I was to come here rather than go to Holland, where I had an offer, I would be in people's eyes. My confidence is built by the little things Harry Redknapp says, little comments that might go unnoticed, but stick in your mind.
'I'm getting there. I know I can still get better. I feel I've got more to give. I've been through a lot. I've been relegated and won a title. But people forget I'm only 22.'
I`ve been impressed with Glen thus far and any improvement would be welcomed by Pompey fans…
