Danilo Pereira now considers himself more of a central defender than a midfielder

The Portuguese player for Paris Saint-Germain spoke about his role on the field

Danilo Pereira is being used more and more as a centre-back and that's why he said on Tuesday that he actually feels more like a defender than a midfielder. The Portuguese was speaking at the pre-show for the Champions Cup, the French Super Cup, which Paris Saint-Germain will play against Toulouse (Benfica's opponent in the Europa League qualifiers), on Wednesday (20.45 hours), at Parque dos Principes.

“Now I feel like a central defender. This is where the coach trusts me a lot, and this is where I feel good. It's not me who decides, it's the coach. If I understand that I play as a midfielder, then I will play. “I'm in good shape. Very good here and I want to stay for a long time,” he said, who has also been used as a starter in the national team, both by Fernando Santos and now by Roberto Martinez.

“The beginning of the season was a bit complicated for me, but with the support of the coach who spoke to me a lot, I was able to progress. “Now I feel good and I have adapted to the style of play that Luis Enrique requires.”

The Portuguese spoke about the efforts to integrate the new reinforcement, Brazilian defender Lucas Peraldo: “Yes, I, Marquinhos, Goncalo, Vitinha, are trying to facilitate his integration into the group.”

Danilo also praised fellow youngster Warren Zaire Emery, who is just 17 years old: “He is the strongest young man I have ever seen in football. Not only is he strong, he has a strong mentality, he is in good shape and doing well, he is a phenomenon.
