Fulham defender happy to switch

last updated Tuesday 07th November 2006, 4:53 PM

Fulham's Carlos Bocanegra is enjoying life in midfield, although he has never played in that position before as a professional.

Carlos BocanegraThe US international's regular role is at left back but he has been forced to make the switch because Fulham have six midfielders on the sidelines with injuries.

The 27-year-old, who featured in Saturday's 1-0 home win over Everton, has no complaints about his new position and wants to add to the goal he scored in the 2-1 victory at Newcastle in September.

"I'm here for the team. I've played left back, centre back and most recently as a defensive midfielder, and that's fine with me, so long as I am on the pitch playing," he told the Daily Mirror.

"I played in midfield when I was younger but never at a high level like The Premiership.

"It's okay though. I am enjoying it. I have Ian Pearce and Zat Knight behind me doing a great job and speaking to me a lot, which helps."
