Angel Thanks Fans

Angel Thanks Fans

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.'

A nice guy as well as a great footballer. In a better Villa team he may have really exploded for more than the one season e did, but he contributed wellmost of his Villa career and I will always remain a fan. Hopefully, with our American connections we may see you in opposition to Villa, one side of the big pond or other. Luke Moore, I hope a huge opportunity is coming your way and that you take it! Adios Juan Pab
