Belletti happy in Chelsea midfield role

Julio Belletti is happy with his role in Chelsea's midfield this season.

The Brazilian fullback has been used regularly in midfield by manager Carlo Ancelotti this season.

"I think now at Chelsea I like to play in midfield because there is so much quality. It is not a difficult job for me because the other players have quality and experience, it is easy to work in that position," he told chelseafc.com. "In defence you work hard of course, you are just one player in front of the defence, but with the ball we can do our job, it is simple.

"I played there in pre-season in America and I spoke with Carlo after pre-season and said I can help the team, not just as a right-back, but also in midfield in the absence of Mikel and Essien, and at this moment in January the team needs me."
