I played at the back in the Champions League with Anderlecht and so I am comfortable playing in that position. I would even be willing to play in goal if needed. “
Cheik is confident the Hammers will not leave Old Trafford empty-handed declaring ““We are all aware of the size of their club; they are one of the biggest teams in the country. We know what to expect from a game there, a nice stadium, good playing surface and a great atmosphere.
Speaking to the official site he added: “I have some great memories of playing for the Senegalese national side during the London Olympics in 2012 at Old Trafford, when we played against Team GB and we held them to a 1-1 draw.
“I hope that we can go to Sunday’s game and play in the same way, we know that it won’t be easy, but with the team spirit as it is at the moment, we know that we can get something from the game.”
