UPSON’S PARTING SHOT AT JOHNSON
MILLWALL signing Ed Upson has dismissed former boss Gary Johnson’s claims that he is not up to Championship scratch after leaving Yeovil on deadline day.
Johnson allowed the midfielder – who had scored four league goals for the Glovers – to head to The Den in a £100,000 deal.
However he has cast doubt on Upson’s “standards” at Championship level as Yeovil struggle to fight their way up from the division’s relegation zone.
But Upson, 24, insists he has proved himself already and it was time to leave Huish Park.
“He can say what he wants – if he wants to say that about his top goalscorer, that’s fine,” said Upson.
“I have got no doubts at all that I have made the step up to the Championship. I’ve proven myself with my performances and by getting the goals I’ve got.
“The circumstances were slightly strange before I left. Things became a bit hostile but I don’t want to go into that too much.
“This is the right move at the right time, with the right manager and the right team.
“I was a bit emotional leaving Yeovil because I’d been there for three years, had some good times there and made some good friends too.”
