Andy Johnson

 

Where is Andy Johnson now?

A deadly finisher at every club he played for, Andy Johnson retired from playing professionally in 2015 after a brief spell at former club Crystal Palace.

A legend at Selhurst Park, Johnson was named in the club’s Centenary XI alongside fellow ex Crystal Palace players Nigel Martyn, Ian Wright, Chris Coleman and John Salako

Johnson got his first taste of coaching during his brief spell back at Palace in 2014 when he was asked to work with the strikers by then manager Neil Warnock.

A year after Johnson left Palace he returned to the club as an ambassador where his duties include mentoring some of the academy players, representing the club in the community and working for the club on matchdays and corporate events.

In 2016, Andy Johnson set up a football academy on the island of Sardinia at the Chia Laguna Resort for children aged between 5 and 15.

The academy runs through the May half term and all through the summer holidays and is within a family-orientated resort which Johnson himself used to frequent.

From September 2017, Johnson will be heading up the Crystal Palace Football Foundation at Mark Rutherford school in Bedford.

After Aaron Lennon’s mental health problems were revealed in May 2017, Johnson launched a Twitter campaign to raise awareness of mental health issues.

For every person who retweeted his message of support, Johnson donated 10p ending up donating thousands to the Mind charity.
