Carlos Sanchez hopes to match the success of fellow Colombian Juan Pablo Angel at Aston Villa.
The former Elche midfielder signed for Villa yesterday.
â€śIâ€™m delighted to be here, itâ€™s something I have always dreamed of and it is very important for me to be here at Aston Villa, not only for me but for my family as well,â€ť Sanchez said.
â€śIt was always my aim to play in this country and in this league and I know Villa well as Juan Pablo also played here.
â€śI began to watch Villa games when he came in 2001. He was a goalscorer who was very important to this club and I followed his time here because he was always scoring goals.
â€śSince I was a boy I have always followed English football, particularly teams where Colombians have played. When I had the chance to come to this club I had no doubts because I know this is a big club in the Premier League.â€ť
