Denis Suarez disagrees with Unai Emery over his role at the club

Barcelona player Denis Suarez completed a loan move to Arsenal after long-lasting negotiations between two sides.

Suarez played under Unai Emery at Sevilla in the 2014-15 season and was playing as a left or right winger.

The Spanish coach intends to give Suarez the same role of winger at the club but it seems that there’s a disagreement over the playing position between two sides.

Suarez told Arsenal’s official website that he prefers midfield as it’s the right position to show his best qualities.

“I’m a midfielder and my best quality is my final ball.

“The person I look up to most in the world of football is Andres Iniesta. He’s always been my idol, ever since I was young. As well as the fact that he plays in a similar position to me, I was also able to spend two years with him – I learned a lot from him. It’s always been a massive compliment to be compared to him.”

Although Suarez may not get many opportunities to play in central midfield under Emery, he is delighted to be reunited with his countryman. He continued: “I have a very good relationship with him. I spent a year with him at Sevilla when we won the Europa League. I think he’s a very demanding coach and one of the best coaches in the world right now – I’ve been saying that for a while. I’m really happy to have the chance to work with him again and I hope that the rest of the season is successful for me and the club.”
