Albion man speaks of 'like-changing' experience
ADIL Nabi is back in training with Albion fired with renewed ambition to earn a first team chance with his parent club.
The 21-year-old has returned from his four-month loan to Delhi Dynamos which saw Adil’s adopted team just fall short of silverware.
They were beaten in the two-leg Indian Super League championship play-off semi-finals by Goa who then lost out to Chennai in the final.
Adil described the experience as “mind blowing” and one which he feels will now help him carry a challenge to join Tony Pulis’s first-team plans.
“It has been the best thing ever for me,” he says. “Although I was disappointed we didn’t reach the final, the whole thing has been mind-blowing.
“The football, the clubs, the fans, the players, the people out there...it has been life-changing.
“I feel I am changed footballer as well as a changed person and I am looking forward to applying that to training now.
“We will see what the second-half of the season brings but my ambition has not changed. I want to make a breakthrough here and I believe in myself.”
Albion sent a four-man delegation to Delhi to check on Adil’s progress during the ISL season, which runs from September to December, as part of a growing relationship with the club.
