Calum Chambers: Why I’m happy to keep switching positions at Arsenal
The Arsenal teenager insists that he is happy to switch positions for the north London club
Calum Chambers insists that he is happy to keep switching positions for Arsenal.
The teenager has been deployed in a number of positions by Arsene Wenger following his summer transfer to Emirates Stadium from Southampton.
The England international has played at both right-back and centre-half as he filled in for the likes of injured duo Laurent Koscielny and Mathieu Debuchy.
And the 19-year-old defender says that he is used to playing in different positions.
“It’s been a good experience for me,” Chambers told Arsenal Player. “I’ve always found myself switching positions from a young age so it’s nothing that I’m not used to.
“I really enjoyed my time at centre half at the start of the season and then unfortunately Mathieu Debuchy got injured, which meant I went to right back and I’ve enjoyed my time there as well.
“[Getting forward more] is the part of the game I enjoy at right back – I like getting forward, I like getting involved far up the pitch and that’s the way we get taught how to play here at Arsenal.
“At some point I will have to settle in a place but until that time, wherever I’m put I will give it 100 per cent and I just enjoy playing football. Whatever position that may be, I’ll give it my best shot.”
