Marc Cucurella Discloses his Best Position After completing Chelsea Transfer

Published

Marc Cucurella has revealed his surprising best position since joining Chelsea from Brighton this summer.

Just under two weeks ago, the Spaniard moved from the south coast to west London, signing a deal worth around £55 million.

There was much speculation linking him to a move to Manchester City, but Chelsea were able to close a deal quickly.

He has made two appearances for his new club so far, as he prepares to become an important member of Thomas Tuchel’s squad this season.

Cucurella made his debut off the bench against Everton before starting against Spurs on Sunday.

He started both games at left wing-back, but the defender believes his best position on the field may be in a different formation.

He revealed during his first press conference in Chelsea: “All three positions on the left side is good for me.

“Maybe my best position is in a back four, left-back because I play all my career, in academies, in this position and have more movement to be comfortable.

“If the gaffer puts me in another position I run as well to be good for the team.”

The 24-year-old has made an immediate impact for his new club, assisting Kalidou Koulibaly for the opening goal against Tottenham.

In the 19th minute, he sent a teasing cross into the box from a corner, before his Senegalese teammate volleyed home his first goal for the club.

Since his arrival, the defender has been complimentary of club captain Cesar Azpilicueta, who has assisted him in settling into life at Chelsea.

He said: “When I spoke (Tuchel) said to me Azpilicueta is extending his contract!

“I am focused on my things. The team is very good. If new players arrive, maybe it is better but the level is very high.

“I’m very happy with this, he’s a legend here. He stays here I think 10 years in a big club, always playing. Now he is the captain.

“The gaffer compared me with this player, it’s good for me. He helped me a lot, with the houses, schools, kids.

“He speaks Spanish. It’s good for me the captain is Spanish. I’m good, I’m happy!”
