Recent Manchester United signing Amad Diallo has expressed his desire to play on the right wing but admitted he is happy to occupy any position manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer asks him to.
Diallo told UTD Unscripted: “Obviously, coaches set up teams in different ways but playing wide-right here, having freedom, having to attack and defend.
“In Italy it is a case of go and attack but then defend and it is the same here. I see myself more as a wide-right player, but I have always said that, in football, you should never have a preferred position. Okay, perhaps you have a preference, but you should be ready for anything.
“I have played wide left, wide right, and I have played through the middle, so all of the positions are the same to me. If the coach tells me to play in a specific position, there will be a reason for that. I will not argue, I will just play in that position.
“If I really have to say a favourite position, I would say wide-right, because, from there, I can dribble and carry the ball deep into the opposition’s half. So I guess it is the position I like best, but I have to be ready for everything”
