"Guardiola killed me"

The Galician side was at City before arriving at Leipzig: "Pep killed me and my self-confidence. I was sentenced after two friendlies and he never gave me another chance."


Angeliño has been one of the great revelations of the Bundesliga. With a total of 8 goals and 11 assists, he is one of the main culprits that Leipzig is in second position in the table, just two points behind Bayern. The German team signed the Spanish side of Manchester City on loan a year ago and ended up executing the purchase option for the Galician, who does not forget his time at City and the little confidence transmitted by his coach, Pep Guardiola.

For this reason, the 24-year-old footballer took advantage of an interview with the newspaper Bild to charge hard against the Catalan coach. “Pep killed me and my self-confidence. After returning from Eindhoven, he had already sentenced me after two friendlies and, afterwards, he did not give me another real opportunity, "were the words of the player trained in Deportivo de la Coruña's youth teams. In 2018, City sold to PSV and bought back a year. Seeing that he still did not have minutes under Pep's orders, Angeliño, finally, decided to try his luck in Germany.

There he met Julian Nagelsmann, a coach who did bet on him for the left wing of his Leipzig. It is clear that Angeliño himself only has words of thanks to Julian. "He can be a coach anywhere, there are not so many like him," he explained. “He already has a very good team, but imagine he had better players. Tactically, he always has the key for each rival, "he added, making it clear that it was Nagelsmann who knew how to see what he was hiding in his boots. And not Pep.
