Ghana defender Lee Addy prefers to operate in central defensive role
Ghana defender Lee Addy says he prefers to operate from the central defensive role despite being used at the left-back at both club and international level.
The 23-year-old, who currently plays for Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb, has been widely used at left-back but sees himself as a natural central defender.
Addy was pivotal in the central defense during his time with Ghanaian side Berekum Chelsea but has since been shifted to his left cultured role.
“I played in both roles at Berekum Chelsea but has been more consistent at the left-back,” he told Power FM
“But if you ask me to choose between the two, I will settle on the central defensive role.
“That is where I feel I can perform better. But nevertheless I’m pretty cool operating from the left-back.
“It boils down to your contribution for the team. That for me is the most important.”
The former Real Star Belgrade defender is hoping to make Ghana’s 2014 World Cup squad.
But he will need to fend off competition from Harrison Afful, Samuel Inkoom, Daiel Opare and Baba Abdul Rahman to make the final cut.
He is currently nursing and injury he picked up during a League Match in Croatia three weeks ago.
