    I like his playing in a defensive position.

    Does this sentence mean:
    1-I like it when he plays in a defensive position.
    2-I like (want) him to play in a defensive position
    3-I like the way he plays in a defensive position, his style.

    Actually I think it could mean all three. Are we allowed to use additional punctuation here, as this might help make any distinctions clearer.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
