Barcelona defender Jeremy Mathieu was surprised to be played at left-back in the El Clasico.

Mathieu made the switch for Gerard Pique’s inclusion as Barca lost 3-1 atReal Madrid.

“I was surprised I played left back, but it is the coach who decides,” said the Frenchman.

Mathieu also urged coach Luis Enrique to play Luis Suarez to his strengths following the striker’s debut.

“It would be a shame for him to play wing because he is a born striker.”
