McLeish Looking For A Place For Hleb

Alex McLeish is struggling to fide the right place for on loan star Alexander Hleb in his Birmingham City side.

The Blues shocked a few people when they got she signature of the ex-Arsenal man, even though it was only on loan.

But Helb has not turned out to be the player that he was when last in England, some saying that he is too good for McLeish`s team of grafters.

'When we've got a player like Hleb in the team, we've got to try to play to his strengths, find him in between the strikers and midfield,' said McLeish.

'We obviously try and get the right link for him, bringing a player of his quality into the squad, but it's not easy to fit him in given the type of style we've played over the past year.'
