Hughton Backs Shearer On Full-Back Issue

Chris Hughton is still baffled why Diego Maradona plays Jonas Gutierrez at right-back in South Africa. Alan Shearer has taken stick in some quarters for hammering Jonas in his two games for Argentina saying: "He is clearly out of his depth in that position, easily the worst player in that team playing where he is." Chris Hughton: "I spoke to Jonas the day before (the Nigeria game) and I knew he was going to be playing there. "The Argentinian coach likes him there, and has played him right-back before (the World Cup). "But I haven't considered him there. I know it's a position that at certain stages Jonas can drop into as he's good at the defensive side of the game. "But it's not a position I will be considering him for."
