Glen Johnson wants to see West Bromwich Albion's Goran Popov banned for longer than three matches for spitting at Kyle Walker.

Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has called upon the English football authorities to extend Goran Popov's suspension.

The West Bromwich Albion full-back will miss his team's next three matches after he was red-carded for spitting at Tottenham Hotspur's Kyle Walker during yesterday's match at The Hawthorns.

However, Johnson has insisted that the Macedonian should receive a heftier punishment.

"I personally think it should be more. Some people get a red card for trying to make a genuine tackle. You do something like that - it's disgusting. No man should be faced with that," he told Sky Sports News.

Popov said sorry for his actions last night via his teammate Peter Odemwingie on Twitter.
