In a recent interview with Bundesliga.com, Bayern München defender Lucas Hernandez reiterated that his preferred position is in central defense.

"I've always said that my main position was centre-back. That's where I played as a youth player," said Hernandez and continued:

"However, when I became a professional player under [Diego] Simeone, I played both on the left and as a centre-back. My best performances were at centre-back. And for the national team, I play as a left-back. But I'm always available to play at centre-back if needed.

"It is a position I like very much. It's my original position, I grew up in this position, though I do enjoy playing on the left.

"[Julian] Nagelsmann wants me to play at centre-back here at Bayern, but I can always play as left-back if needed."
