Eduardo Camavinga is known as a natural midfielder, and is best in a box-to-box midfield role.

Camavinga mostly featured as a left-back last season, due to the injury to Ferland Mendy. For this season, the 20-year-old midfielder has only played a handful of games as a left-back.

Speaking ahead of France’s international friendly with Scotland on Tuesday, Camavinga once again admitted he doesn’t like the left-back role, but will only do it to help the team.

Camavinga said: “They ask me this [question about his position] every day. I am someone who plays for the team and when I am needed. I did not know this position before, but it is where I have adapted, whether with the French national team or with Real Madrid.

“But I don’t particularly like that position. I think everyone knows it but if I have to play there I do it even if it’s not necessarily with pleasure. I’m still a midfielder.

“When I have to play it is not so hard. I spoke with the coach. But as I have always said, the most important thing is the team.

“Someone had to be put in that position and, seeing that I am a team player, I have played there even though I don’t like it too much.

“The best thing is to give everything for the club and for the team. You don’t always have what you want in life and you have to see the good side.”
