Liam Kinsella Keen to Concentrate on Midfield Role

Walsall midfielder Liam Kinsella has spoken to the local press and revealed that he has spoken to manager Dean Keates as he seeks to be considered a full-time midfielder, despite showing promise in the right-back role.
22-year-old Kinsella, who made twenty-four first-team appearances last season, is keen to concentrate his efforts on a midfield role after achieving success in that position, even making appearances for the Republic of Ireland.

Liam, who was speaking to the Express & Star's Walsall reporter Joseph Masi, said; "I had a chat with the gaffer at the end of last season. He told me I had done well in his time at the club and that he wanted me to work hard during the summer. We spoke about my position and I think centre-mid will probably be my position next season.

"It’s where I have played most of my football. It’s where I have played for the Republic of Ireland and when I played for the reserves and youth team. I’m happy to switch it up. And the gaffer was a centre-mid so hopefully, I can learn from him and take that into games."

With the Saddlers squad set to return to pre-season training next week, Colchester-born Kinsella, who has been at the club since he was eight-years-old, insisted that he feels fitter than ever.

KInsella, who along with his teammates has been following a club-prescribed fitness regime over the summer, admitted that he will nedd to hit the ground running, he said; "I have got to go in, show that I am fit and put in some performances. We were all given programmes for the summer but with a week to go you have got to up it. You’ve got to make sure you come back for pre-season fit and I feel the fittest I have ever felt. Hopefully that will impress the gaffer because the new season is fast approaching. It feels like it’s come around really quickly."
