11 most versatile players in football right now
Footballers are usually adept at playing in a single position and are comfortable if clear roles are defined to them. However, there are some players who are capable of adapting and playing in different positions if the situation so demands.
These players are the manager's favourites and often put in a quality shift no matter where they are played on the pitch. There are some big names and world-class stars on this list while there are also some lesser-known players who have shown their versatility and quality with their good performances this season.
Without further ado, let us take a look at the 10 most versatile players in football right now:
#11 Nacho Monreal (Arsenal)
Arsenal have not had the best of seasons so far, but Nacho Monreal has been reasonably consistent with his performances for the Gunners. Capable of playing as a left-back, left wing-back and a central defender, the Spaniard is one of the most versatile players in the Premier League at the moment.
Mostly playing as part of a 3 man defence, Monreal has made 20 appearances this season although he has been frozen out of the team after Arsenal's thrilling 3-3 draw against Liverpool at The Emirates. One of the longest-serving members of the current Arsenal side, the Spaniard will be determined to reclaim his starting position soon.
Known for his stamina, positioning skills and defensive play, Monreal even won the PFA Player of the Month award in October for his good performances as a central defender. Pretty impressive considering the fact that he has played the majority of his career as a full-back.
