New York Red Bull captain Juan Pablo Angel has hinted at a possible return to Argentine club River Plate.

The 34-year old Colombian ace spent four years with the club, commencing in 1997, and says he would love to go back and play there if it were possible.

“Don’t retire me yet, please,” joked Angel. “A return to Nacional de Medellin [his first club] or River is something that one always thinks about. I’m always going to be grateful for everything those clubs and Aston Villa gave me.”

Angel made over 100 appearances and scored more than 60 goals for River, guiding them to two national championships.
