Mancini challenges Johnson to reach potential

Roberto Mancini has challenged Adam Johnson to further improve if he is to totally fulfil his potential, BBC Football report.

The winger made and scored a goal in the Carling Cup against Wolves but Mancini demanded that he does not rest on his laurels: “Sometimes he thinks, ‘OK, in this game I scored one goal, I did an assist, that is enough.

“My opinion is this, he has everything to become one of the top wingers. But he needs to think, ‘I scored one goal, I did one assist, I should continue because I want to score another goal and another assist, and run back to defend,” he concluded.

“Tonight he played well, but for the second goal Wolves scored, he never followed his opponent [Stephen Ward who provided the assist].”
