Luke Young Not Right At Left

Luke Young has admitted he isn't comfortable now he has been moved to left back and wants to return to his usual position on the right when he can.

The 29-year-old seems confused why he has been moved to the right when Nicky Shorey is in the squad and is an out and out left back. On Setanta.com the 29-year-old summer purchase from Middlesbrough said:

'Playing at left back is a different thing for me to get my head around. I am getting on with it and doing a job and if the manager wants to play me there, I'll do my best. Obviously it is not my best position and, at times on the pitch, it becomes difficult when I am on the wrong side and I've got to try to manoeuvre my way out of trouble and things like that.'

Adding, 'I am doing my best there, I am doing a job for the side and, hopefully at some stage, I might be able to get back on the right. I've played three games there now, felt that I've done okay, but it is not really where I see my future.'

Not sure the boss will like that!

Shorey is apparently bed ridden with the convenient flu which Marlon had last week. This can't be anything to do with the fact that they are the two worst players in the team (by a margin) surely??

I think it's fair comment. The guy's a right back and that's where he's best. Big deal!

Mighty Mellberg was in a similar situation last season.

Luke has proved to be a top buy, value for money too. He's a quality right full back, one of the best in the premiership, and was looking good. He's a right back, and a very good one at that. O.K., he's doing a decent enough job on the other flank, but hopefully its no long term thing.

Nicky Shorey will come good. He's too good a footballer not to. He's struggled to date, but he'll do a job for us.
