We raised this question of positions recently in another article.
Talking about Brazilian RB Wallace, Mourinho had following to say,
He is a good player but he won’t be staying with us because we have [Branislav] Ivanovic and [Cesar] Azpilicueta for the same position and he’s also non-EC so we’ll not get the visa. It will be too early, so he’ll go on loan for a season.
Interestingly, Mourinho skips Kalas here. Tomas Kalas is better suited to CB role and it will be great if he played at that role only. Although he did play the majority of the last season at RB position at Vitesse. His style is similar to that of Luiz but I will reserve any judgements here until I see some of his performances in the Premiere League. Although I can’t see him partnering Luiz often.
So will Iva will be played ahead of Azpi at RB or has Mou simply not made his mind yet? Only time will tell!
