Juan Pablo Angel To Stay At Villa
Villa striker Juan Pablo Angel says that he wants to stay at Villa and feels he had a rough deal last season.
In an interview with Janine Self of The Sun, he explains:
"I don`t think I was appreciated last year. It was difficult, very bad. It was not a good season for me. I was not involved, I was playing from the bench and I made only nine starts or something. I`ve been in England six years and this is my fourth manager. It is a big relief to get in someone of Martin O`Neill`s pedigree.'
The £9.5million record signing, now 30-years-old, continued
"I want to stay and work with him. There`s enthusiasm here now. I`ve always believed this club has potential to be successful but, for some reason or another, we`ve been under-achieving for so many years. Martin O`Neill is a winning manager. We`ve the ability to have a much better season than we did last year — but we have to prove it.'
He says last season was 'horrendous' but is optimistic this season will be different because the attitude in the dressing room has already changed.
"There`s already a difference and it would be nice to have a winning dressing room. O`Neill has seen potential here and he can only do good for us."
