He also played as SB as you can read here where it is highlighting the versatility of this player:

"Operava praticamente ovunque: essendo forte nei tackle, era utile in difesa in fase di recupero; impostava le azioni, giocando un gran numero di palloni, cercandoseli in tutto il campo e spesso le concludeva. Esclusa la sua esperienza come ala, all'inizio della sua carriera nella squadra dell'Alfa Romeo, i ruoli in cui fu impiegato maggiormente sono quelli di mezzala sinistra, interno e attaccante. Occasionalmente occupò anche la posizione di terzino, con risultati di tutto rispetto, di mezzala destra, di mediano e di portiere. Gli capitò anche di venire spostato tre volte nella stessa partita, partendo da mezzala per poi giocare da mediano, da terzino e infine terminare la gara al centro dell'attacco, tale era la sua versatilità".
