Peterborough United have unveiled former Bristol City boss Gary Johnson as their new Manager at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.

Johnson left his position at Ashton Gate just over two weeks ago and takes over a Peterborough side whose relegation to League 1 was confirmed on Easter Monday.

The 54-year-old has signed a two-year contract at London Road and becomes the fourth Manager of Peterborough this season, replacing Jim Gannon who recently turned down a long term contract offer to spend more time with his family.

During his time in charge of Bristol City the former Latvian national team Manager oversaw the Robins promotion from League 1 in his first full season in charge, something Peterborough will he hoping he can do again next year.

A delighted Johnson told www.theposh.com: "I have had a look around and I am looking forward to getting Peterborough back to the Coca-Cola Championship. I am excited by the challenge.

"I went out to Orlando in America last week and the Chairman sold the club to me with his enthusiasm, drive and determination. I am happy to respect anyone who puts money into the football club.

"It is an honour they have given me the opportunity to take Posh back to the Championship. I am relishing the opportunity. I came to the game on Saturday against Newcastle and I have about 50 DVDs of matches and I believe the club have the potential to bounce back."
