Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson is prepared to play out of position to secure a spot in Arsene Wenger’s starting XI.
Normally a winger, Nelson was deployed at right wing-back during Arsenal’s 2-0 pre-season victory over Sydney FC yesterday and was voted Man of the Match for his impressive display.
Speaking with Arsenal’s official website, the 18-year-old said: “I’m really happy, more happy with the performance and so excited that I got on and showed what I can do.
“The boss put me there [at wing back], I think for the last week or so now. I’ve got used to it now and have just had to adapt to that. It’s not my normal position but I don’t mind at the moment.
“The role is up and down. You’ve got to be very clever when you attack, knowing when to attack and when to defend, knowing when to tuck in.”
