Lassana Diarra has dismissed reports that he does not want to play at right-back for Real Madrid.
The Frenchman had reportedly told head coach Jose Mourinho that he only wants to play in midfield, but the 27-year-old has stressed that he is happy to help out wherever his coach needs him.
"I play wherever Mourinho wants me to. I am a tireless worker who gives his all for the team," Diarra was quoted as saying on the club's official website.
Madrid are thin on right-backs at the moment following the departure of youngster Daniel Carvajal to Bayer Leverkusen, while Sergio Ramos has largely been used at centre-back recently. Alvaro Arbeloa is therefore Mourinho's only option on the right.
However, Diarra is seemingly ready to fill in whenever Mourinho needs him following his latest comments.
