Weston McKennie is known as an extremely versatile player who can fill out almost any position on the pitch. There are positions that the 20-year-old like more than others, though.

"In the past, I have shown that I can play almost everywhere. I guess goalkeeper is the only position I haven't played yet (laughs)," McKennie said in an interview on Schalke 04's website and added:

"I believe I can get the most out of my abilities as a number six or number eight. When I play in the centre, I have the game behind me, in front of me and next to me."

McKennie scored twice and made six assists in 33 appearances for Schalke 04 last season.
