West Brom's Yacob: Premier League making me complete footballer

West Bromwich Albion midfielder Claudio Yacob believes playing in England has helped him become more of a complete player.

The 26-year old Argentine defensive midfielder has adjusted well to the Premier League since joining from Racing Club in 2012 and suggests the conditions of the game make England's top flight a very high standard.

"This is a different football, in which I am feeling very comfortable, it's a unique experience, I am becoming a more complete player," he told Ole.

"In England, each match, it's one area to the other, it is always played to attack, to pass forward.

"It rains all the time so the grounds are always in a very good condition and that makes the teams play with the ball on the ground, that's why the football here is faster."
