Top 5 Full Backs who can play as Wingers/Midfielders
Finding good and reliable full backs or wingers in football is no easy task. However there have been some players who can play in both these positions with ease. Here is a list of 5 full backs who can operate as wingers or midfielders.
The Brazilian, who is widely recognized as one of the best left-backs in the world, can also operate as a left winger. Marcelo was used mostly as a left winger during Juande Ramos’ stint at the club and ended the season with 4 goals and 3 assists in that position.
Manuel Pellegrini, who succeeded Ramos for the 2009-2010 season, continued to use Marcelo as a winger and the 26-year-old once again excelled in that role, managing to score 4 goals along with 9 assists. Jose Mourinho made Marcelo play in his original left-back role where he has remained ever since but is more than capable of switching to the wing in case of emergency.
