Saelemaekers: 'No preferred position'

Alexis Saelemaekers is not concerned by switching to a right-back role for Milan against Sampdoria today. ‘I don’t have a preferred position.’

It kicks off at 11.30 UK time (10.30 GMT), click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.

Due to the injury crisis, Diogo Dalot or Pierre Kalulu were expected to play at right-back, but instead it’s attacking winger Saelemaekers who drops to a deeper role.

“I don’t have any particular position that I prefer more than others. I just try to give all I can to help the team, that’s what is important to me,” the Belgium international told Milan TV.

“The team is almost back to full strength now, it was a really difficult period playing without so many important players. We have to prove today that we are a strong team.

“It’s crucial we put into practice everything that the coach asks us to do in training.”
