Liverpool FC defender Glen Johnson may face police probe after nightclub incident

LIVERPOOL FC footballer Glen Johnson could be quizzed by detectives after an allegation of assault outside a nightclub in London's West End.

The Metropolitan Police said a man attended a station in the capital on Sunday afternoon claiming he was attacked by the Reds defender near the Movida club in Argyll Street at around 4am that day.

The victim claimed he was punched and suffered arm, chest and facial injuries which are not said to be serious.

Detectives confirmed they are investigating the incident and may speak to Johnson if they feel there is sufficient evidence to support the allegation of assault.

The Metropolitan Police spokeswoman added: "There have been no arrests."

The England star was in London the day after Liverpool's humbling defeat against bottom-club Portsmouth on Saturday afternoon.
