Identical Pep and Nagelsmann, Angelino compares his two bosses

Fri 20 November 2020 | 11:26

Angelino, former Man City, and current RB Leipzig left-back compares Pep Guardiola with Julian Nagelsmann.

After the injury of

Mendy

and

Zinchenko

,

Angelino

was the left-back option for

Manchester City

and

Pep Guardiola

. However, Angelino’s career at City did not last long as he joined

RB Leipzig

. He became a regular starter there. He scored 4 and assisted twice while only four defenders that have played at least 10 times can better his average of 1.8 chances created per 90 minutes.

RB Leipzig

had a surprising run at the

Champions League

last season as they went on to the semi-final and got beaten by

PSG

.

Angelino

was a key player throughout the run as he had 2 goals and 3 assists. The 23 years old defender talks about Nagelsmann and Pep being identical.

"Julian always looks for the opponent's weakness and always wants to play with the ball, it all depends on that. If we can recover the ball in three seconds, then we can dominate quickly.

"That makes the team play well. We play attractive football. We create many chances, we have possession. Some matches don't turn out like that, but generally, we have a lot of chances."

Asked what stopped him from achieving the level he has reached under

Nagelsmann

with

Guardiola

,

Angelino

said: "I believe everything returns to the issue of trust.

"Before my time in the

Netherlands

, I was not ready to play for City. But after my time at

PSV

, I knew I was ready. I also need continuity, not one game every so often.

"I don't know what it was, but it was something I didn't get to have. Then I came to Leipzig and from day one Julian has given me almost everything, and I am very happy."
