Beckham unlikely to play right back, says Leonardo

David Beckham is unlikely to play right back for AC Milan, coach Leonardo said on Tuesday without totally ruling out the idea.

The 34-year-old midfielder, who has rejoined Milan from Los Angeles Galaxy on a five-month loan to try to safeguard an England World Cup place, had said he would be happy to play in an unaccustomed defensive role with Massimo Oddo injured.

"Beckham as a full-back? I haven't tried him in that position because I think at full-back we are well covered," Leonardo told a news conference before Wednesday's Serie A home game with Genoa (1945 GMT).

"In any case he is very willing to try every solution. If I see new ideas which can help get results, I am open."

Beckham's chances of a start in his first game back in Italy, a fixture where he scored last term, have been boosted by minor injuries to midfielders Clarence Seedorf and Andrea Pirlo which could rule them out.
