Emanuelson on the defensive

Urby Emanuelson says he would like to primarily be used as a left-back by Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri this season.

The Dutchman can be fielded in a variety of midfield roles, but he has outlined that he does have a preference.

“I feel ready to play in whatever position will most benefit the team and the Coach,” Emanuelson commented from the Diavolo’s American training base.

“It is true that I am a very versatile player, but I have to say that my favoured role is as a left-back.”

The 27-year-old is back at Milan after spending the second half of last season on loan with Premiership side Fulham.

“We won’t be just targeting a top three finish in Serie A this term,” added the January 2011 signing from Ajax.

“We want to end the campaign as champions of Italy!”
