Eidur Gudjohnsen has reaffirmed that he is happy playing his role at FC Barcelona although he has hinted that he is not necessarily the best option that coach Frank Rijkaard would like to use all the time. Sky Sports quotes the Icelandic international as saying that he is ready to play as his coach wants.
The former Chelsea and Bolton Wanderers striker says:
I was probably not the No.9 that Barcelona needed. It was normal that we played 4-4-2 at Chelsea and I was the second striker. I wanted to stay and prove myself. There were a lot of rumours, but I was mentally prepared. I knew that it was going to be hard. Midfield is where I believe that I can use my quality in a better way by arriving late and trying to cause a surprise.
Gudjohnsen has been used a midfielder who plays just behind the strikers in majority of the matches that he has featured in for Barca this season. He might not be a world class player but the Icelander is certainly one utility player who can come off the bench and turn matches around.
