Man City prospect Angelino: Deportivo La Coruna never gave me chance

Former Deportivo La Coruna defender Angelino caught the eye for Manchester City in their rout of Bayern Munich this week.

Just 16, Angelino impressed against players three years his senior in the 6-0 UEFA Youth League rout.

“You aren’t given as many chances with Deportivo,” he told City's website. “If you are under 16 you play with the under 16s, they won’t give you an opportunity to move up.

“Playing against people older than me helps my game and I can improve my fitness faster than others. If you have good players around you in the team then it isn’t difficult.”
