Djourou happy in central defence

18 February 2012 20:41

Arsenal defender Johan Djourou believes his switch to centre-back will bring out the best in him.

The 25-year-old Switzerland international has had to fill in at right-back during Bacary Sagna's absence through a leg injury.

But with Sagna back in action, Djourou was delighted to slot back into central defence in the club's first leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie against AC Milan.

"I am happy to be back in my position and to show what I am worth," Djourou told the club's official website.

"This season has been a bit harder for me. I have had to play out of position where I am not used to but I have tried to do my job, but I am not a (natural) right back."

"People forget and think that if you play in a position, 'Johan Djourou is a right back', but I am not, I was there to help the team. Now I am back in my position and I will show everyone my qualities."
