West Bromwich Albion youngster Adil Nabi has told the club’s official site that he has loved working with Roberto Carlos, while on his loan spell at the Delhi Dynamos.
Nabi is currently on loan with the Indian side until December, and he has made a good impression with the Dynamos.
The 21-year-old has regularly been utilised in the Dynamos’ first-team, and Nabi has learnt a lot under Carlos’ tutelage.
"The preparation for games, the training, the support for the players...it's all been superb," Nabi said.
"The training under Roberto Carlos has been a great influence too. It's good to hear different ideas and methods.
"I'm in the final year of my contract and the future is undecided. What I am still hoping for most of all though is a first-team chance. That's what I will be fighting for when I return."
Carlos is still regarded as one of the finest full-backs to have every played the game, and Nabi will have been able to learn a lot off the former Brazilian international.
He will hope that he can return to the Hawthorns an improved player, and force his way into Tony Pulis’ starting plans.
The Baggies have a number of forward options, but there may be room for Nabi to break through, if he can show his quality in training.
Nabi is yet to make his first-team debut for West Brom, after developing in their youth-team during his younger years.
