Branislav Ivanovic: Centre half or right back?

Stanley Chou

Jose Mourinho talked a lot last night and his quotes are a goldmine of information at the moment. We've already covered his comments on David Luiz at length, but the poofy-haired Brazilian wasn't the only defender that the Special One ran the rule over. Here's what he had to say about Branislav Ivanovic:

I know Ivanovic is very comfortable in the centre but I see him and Cesar Azpilicueta as our two right backs. Our defensive group will be good.

I'll pop along in a few hours with my thoughts on the matter, but thought I'd open the question up for the community first. Which position would everyone rather see the Serbian man-bear play? He's excelled at Chelsea as a right back for several managers, but was instrumental at centre half for us under Rafael Benitez as the interim manager tightened up the defence towards the end of last season. We've seen Mourinho's (somewhat surprising) opinion, but what think we all?
