Aston Villa first-teamer: I have told Bruce the position I want to play
By Amir Mir
Leandro Bacuna has stated he has told Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce that midfield is the position best suited to his style of play.
Versatile player Bacuna had deployed many roles during his time at Villa Park, most commonly playing in the right-back position.
However specialist full-backs Micah Richards and Alan Hutton have occupied that position in the last two games, with Bacuna used in a midfield role during the 2-1 win over Reading in midweek.
Now the 25-year-old has given his reasons as to why he should play in a midfield position more often ahead of the Saturday fixture against Fulham.
In other Aston Villa team news, manager Steve Bruce has explained what this 30-year-old must do to earn a first-team spot.
