Juan Pablo Angel Feels Love

Juan Pablo Angel Feels Love

Juan Pablo Angel has been talking to the Daily Mail's Neil Moxley and Angel says he 'feels loved' again.

Angel, who joined Villa for a club record £9.5milloin from Argentine giants River Plate has had a rollercoaster ride since joining Villa. His best goal haul came when he scored 23 goals in a partnership with Darius Vassell. This season he has five and hopefully counting.

He says in the article: 'I was back in Colombia with my wife and two sons during the summer and one of the boys turned to me and said: 'Can we go home now, please?' It wasn't until then that I realised just what this country meant to them. It wasn't always like that. When I first came, Villa weren't prepared for a South American and I probably wasn't ready for them.'

Adding: 'Now I have a British passport as well as Colombian. My kids speak English and Spanish and will be citizens of the world. I respect and like the culture here and just want to get on with playing my football.'

He is also excited by the changes happening at the club and wished he was '23, not 30, though I really appreciate every single minute that I've been here, personally and professionally. You definitely learn. Now I really am settled I want to be a part of what is going to happen at Villa. It has been a good start at the moment. Nothing more. I feel appreciated again, I feel wanted again. Yes, I feel loved again. The manager has the ability to tap into a player's state of mind. It's that winning mentality that he has. We respect him and want to play for him.'

He needs to start scoring regularly though. Admittedly he's having a decent season, but we need goals from our central striker, and he's not coming through.
