Ivanovic happy to play anywhere across Chelsea defence

Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic is happy to play anywhere across the back four.

Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic is happy to play anywhere across the back four.

Ivanovic spent much of last season at centre-back, but is considered a right-back by Jose Mourinho and has featured on the flank in all but one of Chelsea's games this season, missing the Capital One Cup win at Swindon.

The 29-year-old is comfortable in either position.

"All my career I've moved inside and outside," he said.

"I'm really happy because it's good for me that I can play both positions. I always try to do my best wherever I play.

"In the end I'm happy because I like to defend, and I'm really enjoying defending in this team."
