Carlos, who played under Del Bosque when the pair were at Madrid, is the current head coach of Turkish outfit Sivasspor.
"When something happens to a player I am there. I try to make life easier and I am a lot like Del Bosque. I'm intense but also find it a joy to coach," Carlos told AS.
"Vicente thought about football, then resting, then football again. I'm the same. He was a simple man who was like my father and I did not want him to leave [Real Madrid]...He was loved."
Carlos was assistant manager at Anzhi Makhachkala last season.
