Johnson: "In New York City FC I feel at home"
Sean Johnson has seen his career elevate since joining City in 2017. Johnson matched a career high in shutouts in his first season with seven, something the U.S. international hadn’t done since 2011 with the Chicago Fire. The shot-stopper’s form in the first half of 2017 saw him return to the U.S. Men’s National Team for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Johnson’s 2018 campaign has built off his 2017 success. For the first time in his career, Johnson has kept double-digit clean sheets (10). In July, Johnson broke Club records by going 396 consecutive minutes without conceding a goal which included four shutouts.
Johnson said: “I knew that once I played my first game with the club, it was somewhere I wanted to be for a very long time. Everybody from the organizational side has made me feel at home: the fans, the front office and my teammates.
“For me, the commitment, with us three going forward, the expectations is always to lift trophies. I think us three kind of embody that and we want to spread that. Hopefully, we are here for a very long time and we are able to instill those things in anybody that comes into the Club from here on out.”
