Where is Andy Johnson now?

Playing in nearly 500 first-team games over a 16-year career, Johnson played for just six clubs winning Palace’s player of the year two years running.

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.

Since 2016 he has been coaching children aged between 5 and 15 twice a year at the Chia Laguna Resort on the island of Sardinia.

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.
