Sergi Roberto: "I'm most comfortable as a left-sided central midfielder"

Sergi Roberto was one of the main protagonists of Barca's victory over Villarreal.

From the start he looked very comfortable, dominating the midfield from the left-handed inside position, away from the right side. And the team was grateful.

After the match, the player from Reus emphasized that "we have started very well and, although we have been tied, we have been very comfortable against one of the teams that returned in full form after the break".

Roberto admitted that "from the beginning to the end we played a very good match and that's the way to go". 

The player congratulated himself on having offered his best version as a left-handed insider, an area in which he can best exploit his virtues: "Tactically, it's been a long time since I played there.

Sometimes I play in midfield on the right and today I played on the left, where I'm more comfortable. That's where I played for Barça B," he analysed. In that sense, he admits that "I've had fun, with spaces and fixing the rival defence".

Of course, he was sincere when he explained that "it's a pity that later I had to return to the side", before rectifying by saying that "I am happy to help the team by playing anywhere". He added that.

"It reminded me of Messi's one in Seville. It was a definition that few players like Antoine and Leo are able to make".
