Martino will not change the Barcelona philosophy, says Adriano

The versatile defender believes the Argentine coach will continue the precedent set by previous trainers and insists he is happy to play wherever his boss needs him
Adriano says new Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino has no intention of changing the club's philosophy.

The Argentine trainer replaced Tito Vilanova at the helm this summer after the latter was forced to step down due to health problems.

And Adriano is confident Martino will continue to play the way which has served the club so well.

"Tata hasn’t come here to change things," Adriano said at a press conference.

"He just wants us to remember and repeat what we have been doing, because Barca’s philosophy doesn’t change."

The 28-year-old then went on to say that he is happy to play wherever the coach needs him as he is eager to help the team in whatever way possible.

"I can play in a number of roles and I’ll play at centre-half if needed, because I’ve done that in training too," he added.

"Tata trusts me, which is important, and if I have to play right-back, left-back or on the wing, wherever – I just want to do it well."

Adriano has netted once in two La Liga appearances so far this term.
