Delhi Dynamos are counting on Roberto Carlos free kicksReuters

Delhi Dynamos might just have plenty of reasons to celebrate in the upcoming season of the Indian Super League (ISL) 2015. They have roped in one of the best Brazilian left-backs of the late 90s and he got even more famous for his special 'banana free kick' against France that left Fabien Barthez stunned. He goes by the name of Roberto Carlos.

David Beckham, Zinadine Zidane, Ricardo Kaka, Ronaldo Nazario de Lima, Cafu and Marcelo have all wished Carlos for his new stint with Delhi Dynamos in the ISL 2015. 

Carlos will be Dynamos' marquee player-cum-manager in ISL 2015. They are surely banking on his breathtaking free kicks and defensive power. The day he signed for Dynamos earlier this year, the fans expressed their excitement and happiness over several social media websites.

Dynamos, under the surveillance of Carlos, can give serious competition to the other teams in the ISL in the forthcoming edition. They have also roped in Florent Malouda, who's a former Chelsea hotshot, to add pace and flexibility to their wings. India forward Robin Singh will also be featuring for the Dynamos in ISL 2015.

Dynamos recently concluded their Swedish sojourn and came back to India. They trained their for sometime and played a couple of practice matches as well. This gave the players the much needed match practice ahead of the ISL which starts in another couple of weeks in Chennai.

Delhi Dynamos will play their first game of the ISL 2015 against FC Goa at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda in Goa on 4 October.
