Real Madrid midfielder Khedira happy with defensive role

Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira is happy with his role in their system.

Khedira fulfils the defensive duties in Real's midfield.

He said: "We have an incredibly attacking team, with the best forwards in the world. Cristiano Ronaldo, Özil, Higuaín and Benzema are top quality strikers. It is very important to balance a solid defence and not just give everything in attack. I think one of my functions as a midfielder is to keep a good balance between defence and attack."
