    I bought him for Barcelona and he replaced both Abidal and Puyol

    What’s the thoughts on using him as a left back? I understand he probably plays best as a CB, but I’ve got Jones and Papadopoulos in the middle, and with the lack of serious quality left backs in the game I’m wondering about buying and putting Bocchetti there? I’ve converted Azpilicueta to play LB, but don’t feel he’s quite up there yet.

      I think he would do a good job at left back, although it may be worth spending that sort of money on a more natural player. You can always train him up to be more natural on the left.

      All in all, I think if you want a someone to do a decent job at left back but also fill in at centre back when needed then he is your man, but if you want just a left back then going for someone else would be a better option :)

      Hope I have helped you mate!
