Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj has revealed that he can play in a number of positions - including the centre-forward role. 

The Red Devils youngster, who has been speaking to United Uncovered, insisted that he can play in as many as three positions.

The 19-year-old broke into the first team at the start of the season and has become a key player for Manchester United boss David Moyes in recent time. 

And now the teenager has revealed that he can play in the No.10 role, on the wing or even as a centre-forward for Manchester United. 

As reported by, Januzaj said: "Zidane, Riquelme and Kaka are all no.10s and that's the type of player I admire most. I played in the no.10 role against Norwich City in the Capital One Cup game earlier this season and really enjoyed it, but I can also play on the wing and I'm used to playing there.

"I can play in different positions - I was a centre-forward for the Reserves and I think I did a good job for the team. "The first thing is always to work hard for the team, and I did my best. Most importantly, I have worked hard for my chance. The boss gave me an opportunity to prove myself so I've tried to do my best with it."

Manchester United fans will certainly be hoping to see more of the teenager in the coming months as Moyes' side look to climb the Premier League. 

The Old Trafford outfit are currently in danger of missing out on Champions League qualification and may need to win the competition to remain with Europe's elite. 

However, Manchester United will have to get past Olympiacos in the Champions League Round of 16 second leg. 

The Red Devils currently trail the Greek side 2-0 and fans will be hoping Januzaj takes the field at the Theatre of Dreams on March 19.
