West Brom striker Salomon Rondon has heaped praise on “superb” team-mate Claudio Yacob – who is back to his best this season.
The midfielder became an instant hit with the fans after an impressive debut season the years ago, but struglled to live up to those standards over the following two campaigns.
But record-signing Rondon insists the Argentinian is an important player at the Hawthorns.
“Claudio is very good man and a superb player,” the Venezuelan told the Midlands Express and Star. “He is very important for Albion, he has been at the club for a long time and is a key player.
“Claudio is a very solid player in the middle and he always performs well. He is very difficult to play against and not many things get past him.
“My job as an attacker is to score goals, but I am happy to have Claudio in my team to stop other sides scoring. I love playing with him.”
