Ex-Villa star Angel felt clam against former NYRB teammates

LA Galaxy striker Juan Pablo Angel says playing against his old teammates on the weekend was just another game for him.

The former Aston Villa star played a full 90 minutes of the 1-1 draw at The Home Depot Center and was unlucky not to have scored in the 25th minute when he headed home a Landon Donovan cross but was called off-side.

Angel said it felt just like another game although he did admit to having some emotions against the club he holds the all-time scoring record for.

"At the end of the day it's just another three points that we're playing for," said the former Red Bull star.

"I felt good. I was calm. There are emotions obviously playing against your old teammates and the team you played a number of years for but to me it was just another game."
