There’s a reasonable chance that if Angelino was still a Manchester City player, and had shown the development he has at PSV, that he’d be getting some games under Pep Guardiola.
The 22 year old left back signed for Manchester City in 2013, having previously spent time in the youth system at Deportivo La Coruna.
He was then sent out on loans to New York City, Girona, Mallorca and NAC Breda.
His form for the latter made PSV interested in the player and he moved there permanently in June 2018.
De Telegraaf say the Dutch club paid €5.5m to Manchester City and they state that given his ‘spectacular development’ that figure now looks like a bargain.
The big story in Dutch football this week is Ajax knocking Real Madrid out of the Champions League, and Angelino has been asked if it angered him.
Speaking to De Telegraaf, the Spaniard insisted he’s not bothered: “I never really watch football I do not have a preference for Real Madrid or FC Barcelona either. I had the chance to go to both clubs in 2013, but then I chose Manchester City. I never regretted that.”
The youngster is determined to win the Eredivisie title with PSV this season, in what has been a great campaign personally for him.
In November, Angelino explained how much he’d enjoyed working under Pep Guardiola: “I did not play much, but the six months I was with Pep were a pleasure. You can learn from a genius like him every day.
“I went from being with Pep to playing in Segunda… I did not really know where I was going with the thing. My idea was not to go out so many times, but I am happy because those decisions have helped me to now be in a top team.”
