Fernando Santos: Danilo is a midfielder for me

Danilo Pereira reports that he is not a defender and Fernando Santos agrees with Portugal’s player, but PSG manager Thomas Tuchel has a contrary viewpoint.

In the debate on the role of Danilo Pereira in the Paris Saint-Germain squad, Fernando Santos took part saying he sees the foreign Portuguese as a midfielder.

Danilo played center-back in four of his five games since joining PSG on loan from Porto in October.

“Being a defender is not my job,” he told Telefoot. “I’m a midfielder. The coach asks me to play at center-back, so I do what the coach asks me to do.”

“I know the basic role of a defender. I’m trying to get used to it. My team-mates help me a lot to find my bearings in defense.”

Portugal coach Santos agrees with his player, saying on Thursday: “With enormous respect for my PSG colleague [Tuchel], Danilo is a midfielder for me.”

“He can play center-back on occasions, just like William [Carvalho], but my opinion is that he is a midfielder and will continue to be a midfielder.”

“But that doesn’t mean I’m right.”
