Ghana defender Opare comfortable at right, left back roles in Black Stars

Ghana defender Daniel Opare claims he’s comfortable at playing both the right and left back positions in the Black Stars.

The 23-year-old is seen as a natural right-back but has been used in a make-shift left-back role when representing his country.

Opare, who plays for Belgium side Standard Liege, was drafted into the left-back role position during the World Cup first leg 6-1 demolishing of Egypt in Kumasi in October last year where he excelled.

However the former Real Madrid youth star claims he can play  both roles with no difficulties.

“I can play both roles. I have no difficult with it at all,” he told Happy FM

“I have played at the right and left back positions many times and so I have no issues with that at all.

“Anywhere they put me, I can deliver. As far as I’m concerned, that’s the most important thing.

“At Standard Liege, I have played at the two positions on a number of times.

“Even at Ashantigold, I was a central defender. And so for me anywhere you put me at the back, I’m comfortable.”

Opare’s versatility puts him shades ahead of his competitors ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

He is seen as a key figure of the current Black Stars squad and likely to make the country’s  squad to the global showpiece.
