"Pep has killed me and my self-confidence,"

Angelino told reporters.

“After my move from Eindhoven back to City, he had already judged me on two pre-season games and then didn't give me a real chance again. 

"So I was happy that I moved to Leipzig and that I am now an integral part of the club."

Asked to address the differences between Guardiola and Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann, the 24-year-old responded:

“One of them gave me confidence and let me play. The other one just didn't. 

“In Leipzig, I felt trust from day one. The club and the coach gave me an incredible push. I am now happy to be able to play consistently in Leipzig."
