However, instead of wishing him a happy birthday, fans predicted that the versatile defender will be key in the event of relegation this season.
One proclaimed that he and Josh Cullen are the kind of players that will stay at the club, whilst another stated that he’ll be the future in the Championship next campaign and one more tipped him to tear the division up.
You can see the pick of the Johnson comments below…
He will be important in the championship next season

Ben Johnson is a huge talent and one that, if he wasn’t injured, would have had significant game time in the PL this season due to Fredericks’ injury issues. However, what with the likelihood of relegation, players like Ben Johnson, Cullen are those that will remain at the club.
