  • He thanked Manchester United for allowing the use of The Cliff as a training base this week, a place steeped in footballing history
  • Johnson believes the experience should be an inspiration for his players
  • The head coach wants to see the "basics" executed correctly at the DW Stadium, and eradicate the "attitude errors", following defeat on Tuesday night to West Brom
  • He confirmed Eros Pisano is facing up to six weeks out with a thigh injury
