Johnson lifts lid on Rodallega ruckus

Johnson confronted the Colombian during the first half of the

goalless draw at St Andrew’s after being caught by the forward’s

arm. Rodallega reacted by twice pushing his forehead towards

Johnson’s chin, with both players picking up a yellow card from

referee Mark Clattenburg for the incident. And Johnson claimed it

was not the first time Rodallega had caught him in such a manner.

Johnson told the Birmingham Mail: “That’s the only reason I got the

hump. He did me last year and cut me. It was exactly the same

challenge again. I think I was within my rights to have a word with

him. “The ref’s come in and it was a harsh booking for me, to be

honest. If it happens on the street, then you go and have a word

with whoever did it.”
