Forward happy to withdraw

Forward happy to withdraw

On loan forward Tony Andreu is perfectly happy to play a different role if it continues to benefit the team.

The 28-year-old Frenchman has operated in a more withdrawn midfield position while helping his colleagues to accumulate four welcome points over their past couple of games. He's already netted seventeen times since arriving from Norwich City in August.

"The gaffer made the change so you have to agree with this and it has worked for the last couple of games," Andreu reasoned to the Dundee Evening Telegraph. "Even though, from my point of view, first half against Dunfermline on Tuesday I was really deep and did not contribute up there the way I would have liked, it is not a problem because we won.

"Yes I am more a forward player than a defensive player, but if it is for the benefit of the team, and it has been, it is great," he added. "And I don't see it as a sacrifice because it is a team sport. You have to be where you have to be for the team."
