Real Madrid star linked with Liverpool and Arsenal admits he 'doesn't like' his role under Carlo Ancelotti

Real Madrid star linked with Liverpool and Arsenal admits he 'doesn't like' his role under Carlo Ancelotti

The Frenchman didn't enjoy playing there.

Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has admitted he "doesn't like" his role under manager Carlo Ancelotti.

The 20-year-old midfielder played regularly at the Bernabeu last season, but was often deployed in an unorthodox left-back position to cover for the injured Ferland Mendy.

Camavinga was originally used as a full-back within Didier Deschamps France team, where he produced a record-breaking performance for Les Bleus during their defeat to Tunisia in the World Cup group stage.

He has since reverted to his usual midfield position since the arrival of Fran Garcia at Madrid and opened up on what it was like to play the position.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of Los Blancos' opening Champions League group stage match-up against Union Berlin, Camavinga admitted it was not his favourite position.

When asked if he ever wanted to play there again, the Frenchman told reporters (quotes via Football Espana): “I knew someone was going to ask me this!"

"I am a team player. People know that I don’t like playing this position, but there are times you have to help the team. I did it the season before.

“Thankfully, I have played in midfield more, little by little I have been gaining experience and, although I don’t like playing on the left back, sometimes it has to be done."

Over the summer, Camavinga was allegedly the subject from a number of Premier League clubs including Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal.

The player's agent, Jonathan Barnett, rubbished rumours linking him with a move to England, revealing that he "has never thought about playing for another team".

"He is going to be one of the stars of Real Madrid in the future, so for what to leave," Barnett told GOAL. "It was all rubbish."

He has since put pen to paper on a lucrative new deal at Real Madrid, keeping him at the Bernabeu until 2028 which also includes a release clause of €1 billion.
