The Argentine joined the Blaugrana from Liverpool in 2010, and was largely expected to compete with Sergio Busquets for the holding midfield slot.

However, the 28-year old has since been converted to a central defensive berth where he has featured regularly, but he concedes he is still not a major player.

"Cases like Xavi, Puyol, Leo [Messi], and Iniesta are different [from the rest of the squad]," he told Sport Journal.

"They are the heart of this team, the most important.

"It`s like a movie, [with major and lesser actors]. Everyone is needed, but they should know their place. I am happy with my position and do not intend to occupy a role more important than my current one."

The former Corinthians player went on to dismiss any suggestions of a feud between team-mates Messi and David Villa, who engaged in a heated argument during Barcelona`s recent victory over Granada.

"When things aren`t going the way we want them to, we each have different ways of reacting," the San Lorenzo native opined.

"It`s been [blown out of proportion.] These are normal things."

Barcelona will look to maintain their perfect record in La Liga when they travel to Sevilla on Saturday night.
