Juan Pablo Angel has said his farewells as he leaves for the MSL in America.
The 31-year-old striker said: 'Aston Villa will always have a place in my heart.'
And added on the official site:
'I would like to take this opportunity to basically thank the fans and everyone at the club. They will always have a place in my heart. Everyone has made me feel welcome from day one. It's an exciting moment for me with a new challenge, but on the other hand it's a sad moment because I only have good memories of my time here at Aston Villa and I struggle to find the words to thank everyone here.'
'I will always be grateful to the Villa supporters and I wish them all the best.
'I hope that one day, later on in my career or in my life, I will have the opportunity to come back here in different circumstances. I think this club has huge potential.'
And on a fellow USA exile and another player ending his top level career far too early, he added:
'I made my Villa debut against David Beckham at Old Trafford. It's an exciting time for me. I never thought about playing in America, but when the opportunity came along I spoke to my family and made some calls. The whole project suits me and I'm looking forward to being part of it. I cannot wait to get there, start training and hopefully start playing. I was sidelined over the last couple of months or so and I didn't want to be around not playing in the games I wanted to pay in. This opportunity came along and I just want to be playing regular football. I'm excited about that, but I wish this club well.'
