Angel set to quit New York Red Bulls

Juan Pablo Angel admits this may be his last season with MLS outfit New York Red Bulls. The competition's all-time leading scorer says it is 'very likely' that he will move in 2011 but admitted that his time with the Red Bulls was extremely enjoyable.

"(If) you ask me would I like to stay here, I would because I get along with everybody here. I've been expecting a team like this for years and finally we brought it. But if I have to move on I will move on. I wish them well,'' he told the NY Post. "I think it's very likely; but having said that, I've been grateful for every minute that I've been here."

But before he goes, Angel is keen to bring the MLS Cup to New York and leave on a positive note.

"I have the rest of the year to play. I've enjoyed a phenomenal year; performance-wise I'm still producing what I'm supposed to produce. What happens afterwards, there are some things I can't control. I will tell you straight I have enjoyed every minute of my time here. I can tell you whatever decision is made will be made in the best interest of the team," he added.
