Urby Emanuelson wants to make an impression at left-back for Milan this season after returning to San Siro.
The 27-year-old, who spent the second half of last term on loan at Fulham, is a versatile player who can also be used in a variety of midfield roles.
“It is important for me that I play this season,” the Dutchman noted. “I am back at Milan and the Coach has used me as a left-back so far.
“I think that would be my position for this season.”
Emanuelson could be used in that role tonight against PSV Eindhoven, in the Champions League qualifier, given the injury to Mattia De Sciglio.
“There is a good rivalry between Kevin Constant and myself for the full-back spot, but Kevin is a friend, we talk a lot together,” he added. “Let’s see who will play…
“PSV? They have always been a good team and this year they are young – but they still have great quality.”
