Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has expressed his disappointment at Glen Johnson's performances for the club this season and told the 26-year-old he is not playing like England's right-back.Johnson's game-time in recent weeks has been limited - he has played just one of the Merseysiders' last seven matches due to injury - but he has failed to impress Hodgson when he has been on the pitch.Hodgson said: "He's the England right-back and, if he plays like that, one would expect him to come back in when he's fit."But then he'd have to play like the England right-back and up to now, to be quite frank, he's not performed - very often at least - to the level I'd expect of him."You would have to ask him 'do you think you're playing at top form and are you playing like the best right-back in the country for your club?'"If he says yes, obviously we will have to agree to differ and if he says no, then you'd have to ask the question `why not?"'
