Manchester City left-back Angelino, who signed for Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on loan in January, impressed onlookers with an assured performance as he delivered the match-winning assist to book Leipzig’s place in the Champions League semi-final.
CityXtra covered the Spaniard’s stats, after a game that left some City fans wondering about the player’s future at the club, and whether Pep Guardiola was wise to let the full-back leave on loan given the current issues in his position.
Meanwhile, German pundit Raphael Honigstein christened Angelino ‘the human scattergun’ in reference to his unpredictable crossing attempts. Forebodingly, it was a deceptive pass towards the end from Angelino that set-up the winning goal.
Norwegian journalist Jonas Giaever was full of praise for the assist.
It will be interesting to see how the City defender fares against the likes of Neymar and Mbappe in the semi-final against PSG, but if he plays like he did against Atletico Madrid, then perhaps his career in England may be given a lifeline…
