Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby has offered a surprising opinion over his playing strengths.

Regarded mainly as a winger or inside-forward, Holtby insists his best position is as a holding midfielder.

"In my opinion my best position is as one of the holding midfielders, or maybe in a 4-3-3 formation as one of the central midfielders. This is where I feel most comfortable and where I can put my best effort in," he told the Daily Mail.
