Damien Johnson

Where is Damien Johnson now?

Birmingham City legend and former club captain Damien Johnson retired from playing in 2013 after a season playing for League Two side Fleetwood Town.

As soon as he hung up his boots Johnson went into the coaching side of the game, taking the necessary qualifications and getting experience assisting at various clubs including Everton.

In 2014, Johnson moved back to Blackburn where he had spent his youth and early football career and in early 2015 was recruited by Blackburn Rovers to coach their under 14’s academy side.



After only a couple of months into his Blackburn coaching career, Johnson was asked by new Northern Ireland under 21’s manager Jim Magilton to join his new look management team working with Kevin Horlock and Mark Crossley.

In July 2015 Damien Johnson was appointed head coach of the Blackburn Rovers under 21’s side, working alongside former team mate John Filan.
