I am a central defender but Everton boss likes me in midfield - Besic

Everton midfielder Muhamed Besic has revealed that even though manager Roberto Martinez likes to play him in midfield, he is naturally a central defender.

Besic started the season a little shaky in his new position but his performances have constantly improved during the course of the season.

"Normally I like to play central defender but the manager thinks I am better at No 6," Besic told the Liverpool Echo.

"I have had to work on my positioning and early on in the season I pressed too high or got out of my position and he wants to me to be the holding midfielder and learn the position."
