— In Kazan, you and Malcolm played «ten» in a 3-4-2-1 formation. Apparently, both of you are very comfortable in this role. What position do you see yourself in? — Claudinho’s question.
— During our first conversation, webpage Sergei Semak asked where I was most comfortable playing — in the center or on the flank. I replied that I was ready to close any position from the midfield to the attack line: right, web site left and center. I once played for the Brazilian Olympic team in the holding area, and https://muckrack.com/ it worked out well. Perhaps, of all the roles, the role of an attacking midfielder is most familiar to me, but in general it is convenient for me to play everywhere — from the center line to the opponent’s penalty area.
