Super Eagles defender, Chidozie Awaziem has revealed he feels more comfortable playing as a centre-back despite lining up in severally positions for both club and country, AOIFootball.com reports.

 

The CD Leganes defender, who spoke to AOIFootball.com exclusively, stated that although he natural enjoys playing at the centre of the defence, he would, however, be available to play in any position the coaches decide.

 

“I play other position but I feel more comfortable playing at the centre- back but again it all depends on the coach. If he needs me in the centre- back position, the right-back, the midfield or the left-back, I just have to go all out and give my best.

 

”I just want to be on the pitch playing regardless of the position and do well for my club and country,” Awaziem concluded.

 

The 23-year-old enjoyed a short stint as a right-back with the Super Eagles at the last AFCON in Egypt as he replaced the injured Shehu Abdullahi with ease and has also lined up as a defensive midfielder this term for Leganes.
