Sergi Roberto happy with midfield role for Barcelona win

Sergi Roberto admits he feels comfortable in his midfield role for Barcelona.

Roberto shone in a midfield role on Sunday as Barcelona beat Villarreal 4-1 to keep within four points of Real Madrid with four games to go in La Liga.

"Tactically, it has been a while since I played there," he said after the game. "Sometimes I play central midfield but on the right and today I was on the left side, where I am most comfortable. It's where I played for Barça B."

The Spain international added: "I enjoyed it, I had a lot of fun, with space and focused on the opposition's defence. It's a shame I had to back to right-back [late on] but I am happy to help the team playing wherever."

On the win, he concluded: "We started really well, even though they equalised, and we were really comfortable against one of the form teams since the lockdown. From beginning to end it was a good performance and that's the path to follow."
