Toronto FC's Laba full of praise for NZ, Blackburn legend Nelsen

Matias Laba has heaped praise on Toronto FC head coach Ryan Nelsen.

The Argentina U20 international, who was signed from Argentinos Juniors as a Designated Player last month, is loving his time in Toronto and enjoying playing under former New Zealand and Blackburn Rovers great Nelsen.

"I definitely admire Ryan as a coach and as a person and as a player due to what he achieved before," Laba told

"He is the type of coach who is very thorough in his approach when he is asking something from you or trying to teach you something. He really makes it easy for me to understand what is expected of me."
