Fabian Johnson was praised earlier this week by new Borussia Monchengladbach manager Marco Rose and the American midfielder will try to follow-up on his first start of the season.
The 31-year-old will aim to be on the field as Gladbach face RB Leipzig in Bundesliga play on Friday. Johnson’s ability to stay fit has been an issue over the last few seasons, but should he stay healthy he can provide a versatile option for Gladbach this campaign. Hosting a tough Leipzig side will be challenging for Gladbach, but the side will aim to remain unbeaten by weekend’s end.
