But Johnson, 42, wants to give an insight into his 523-game stint in management with zoom sessions online.

Johnson posted on business social media platform LinkedIn: “This is a message for coaches that aspire to be a manager/head coach or potential technical directors.

“As I’m out of work currently, I thought I would offer up my experiences by the way of four interactive zoom services for five individuals that are keen on learning from my experiences over 500+ games in management.

“Topics covered will include… the interview process, playing philosophy and periodisation, recruiting players and staff, development of younger players, examples of effective working relationships with players and club hierarchy, media management and club structure.”

Johnson was sacked by the Cod Army after a run of nine matches without a win in all competitions and replaced by ex-Liverpool and Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam.

Fleetwood are bottom of League One, eight points adrift of safety.

Johnson only joined the club in September having been dismissed by Scottish Premiership side Hibernian in August.

He had been at the helm of Hibs since May 2022.


Johnson won the EFL Trophy with Sunderland in 2020-21.

His longest managerial stint came as manager of Bristol City, where he was in charge for more than four years.
