Olof Mellberg - Alright On Right?
Olof Mellberg Has said tomorrow against Manchester United 'might be a good game to move back into central defence' having played mostly at right-back recently to cover for players missing by injury.
The Sweden international defender said:
“It has been all right at right back. I played there at the beginning of my international career but it was a long time ago. I feel more comfortable in the middle but I am happy to fulfil a role there if that’s what the gaffer feels is best.'
Adding 'It will be nice to face Ronaldo. It might be a good game to maybe move back into the centre - but we will see how it goes. He is a great player and United have got Ryan Giggs who can operate in that position as well. We need to be on top of our game against them.'
He also thinks that Manchester United can win the title can fend off money bags Chelsea. 'I think that United can hold off Chelsea. They look really strong. They have definitely been the strongest team so far this season. It is going to be between them and Chelsea for the title but Manchester United have looked really powerful so far.'
'It will act as a really good lift if you can get a positive result out of this sort of game. Even though we need the points and we have got to get our home form going, I don't think there will be any pressure on winning these games coming up against Manchester United. But, if we can get good results there, it will give everyone a boost.'
Must admit, I'd much rather see Mellberg play in the centre, trouble is who would O'Neill drop in the centre, both Gary Cahill and Liam Ridgewell have been playing well, Cahill especially in my ever so humble opinion?
