Jermaine Jenas thinks West Ham have a ‘real player’ on their hands

He can operate at right-back, left-back, right wing-back or left wing-back. Johnson possesses exceptional technical ability, has great energy and has so much composure for someone so young.

The West Ham youngster had huge pressure on his shoulders when he came on against Manchester United at Old Trafford as a second-half substitute. He dealt with it with ease, however.

“He’s a real player by the way, Ben Johnson, a real player.”

Johnson has been with West Ham since he was just eight years old.

He clearly bleeds claret and blue and has a fantastic future at the London Stadium lying ahead of him.

If Johnson continues to work hard, the sky’s the limit for him.

Let’s hope he goes on to become a world-class star for West Ham. He certainly has the talent to do just that.
