Francis Coquelin: No problem playing fullback for Arsenal

Francis Coquelin says he's happy to play anywhere for Arsenal.

The 20-year-old Frenchman joined Arsenal almost four years ago and played a starring role in the Youth Cup-winning side of 2009.

"I want to play as much as possible," he told "At the moment it's at right back, even if I'm usually a midfielder, but it's not a problem. I'm doing everything I can to play.

"It's only really at the start of this season that I have started playing with the first team. I played against Manchester United at the end of August. Since that, I try to get as much time on the pitch with the first team as possible, whatever the position."
