Juan Pablo Angel says there is a new era at Villa and he wants to be part of it.
The Columbian striker said: 'I'd like to be part of the new era. But those things you can't control. I wish I'd had the chance to have worked with Martin before, but that's the way it is. It only came around this year when we got the new owners and although there have been big changes, they have already proved to be a massive hit.'
'I personally believe in the next few years this football club will change a lot. People are getting a bit excited about Villa but things won't change overnight. It's going to take time and it's going to take years to make it a major club and a major team challenging for honours.'
Angel continued: 'The manager knows what he's looking for and he'll build the squad over a period of time. Obviously it's even better when you're doing well to start with because it gives you more room for improvement. Anyone with any footballing knowledge knows it will take a few years to develop a proper squad and I'd like to be part of it, but only time will tell.'
And on his future he says 'I haven't got a clue what's going to happen. The manager has been trying to do an assessment. He knows some of us already and at the back of his mind he knows which players are going to be a part of the future or not. Only time will tell. I would like to be here, without a doubt.'
Be interesting to see how Angel can do playing up front with Carew to feed off and Young/Gabby on either wing, still not sure I rate his chances of staying beyond the summer though, what do you think?
Angel has 7 goals this season (4 Prem, 3 League Cup) and has started 18 games, been on the bench 6 times - coming on 4 times. He has also been replaced 9 times.
