Mikey Johnston gets Lionel Messi-inspired guidance following his milestone with West Brom.

Carlos Corberan has urged Mikey Johnston to emulate Lionel Messi’s work ethic in order to sustain his success during his loan spell at West Bromwich Albion.

Johnston, who arrived from Celtic in January, initially made a significant impact with seven goals, earning him the Championship player of the month accolade.

However, his goal-scoring spree slowed down recently, with only one goal in his last seven appearances, as opposing teams have become more aware of his threat and have devised tactics to contain him.

Despite this, Johnston demonstrated his quality in the recent victory against Rotherham, contributing to Brandon Thomas-Asante’s goal. Corberan highlighted the need for Johnston to maintain his high level of performance, as increased attention from opponents requires him to work even harder to maintain his effectiveness in matches.
