Diamanti accepts bench

Brescia playmaker Alessandro Diamanti says he is prepared to accept a role on the bench.

The Rondinelle have switched to a 3-5-2 system in an effort to survive in Serie A this season.

The decision by Beppe Iachini means there is no space for a classic No 10 like Diamanti in his side.

"When Livorno won Serie B, I was on the bench for three or four games," Diamanti said.

"Then do you remember what happened in the play-off final?

"The same thing happened at West Ham. I was out of the team for a few games then I was back and scored seven or eight goals.

"It's normal. It can happen. I do what I am told. I always try to give my maximum."
