Bayern München star Benjamin Pavard says he's well aware that he's not the best right-back in the world.

The French international is a natural centre-back, but has been used as a right-back for both club and country - and he is doing everything he can to adjust to the position.

"I know I'm not the best right-back in the world. I still have things to learn. There are some who are a lot better than me, but I think I've improved in certain areas: my crosses, defensively," Pavard told L'Equipe and added:

"With my agent, we have put a lot of things in place with a physio, a fitness coach, and video analysis for me to perform as well as possible. I'm not putting myself in a hierarchy. I say to myself, 'I'm not the best right-back in the world, but I'm going to do everything to improve.'"

Pavard has made 18 appearances for Bayern with two goals and three assists to his name following his summer move from VfB Stuttgart.
