Angelino is showing the benefits of working under Pep Guardiola after he stole the show in RB Leipzig’s 2-0 win over Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League, says Julian Nagelsmann. 

The Spaniard, playing left midfield, scored twice at Red Bull Arena – the first of which was a result of a glorious takedown and spin that Nagelsmann described as “world class”. 

Angelino came through the youth ranks at Manchester City and spent time in the first team as well as going out on a spate of loan spells, the latest of which took him to Leipzig in January in a temporary deal that was extended for the 2020-21 season with a purchase option included. 

In total Angelino scored from two of his three shots on goal and provided a key pass, while he also gained possession of the ball six times for a Leipzig side that actually had less possession. 

Nagelsmann was full of praise for Angelino’s performance, talking up the influence of City boss Guardiola on his development.

“Angelino is only unpleasant when he doesn’t play, which only happened twice this year. That pretty much describes his character,” Leipzig coach Nagelsmann said.  

“I think Yussi [Yussuf Poulsen] agrees, that he only wants to win. He is like a child that just wants to play all the time. He is almost as bad as me. I’m always playing around with a ball.  

“But he just always wants to have the ball and you see him constantly shooting it. After training he wants to continue. He has a massive playing instinct and he just wants to win all the time and play around with a ball.  

“I have to admit, he arrived after working under a great manager. I can’t just praise myself. He came as a well-developed player.  

“We haven’t brought many players in from Pep Guardiola, yet, so we can’t draw a comparison. But his adaption time was minimal, as he arrived from a great team and a great manager, who surely taught him something.  

“He is inquisitive, listens and implements things, as he is a great footballer with an instinct to play.  

“He wants to work all the time and Yussi is like that too. So you adapt and show great results. To score his first goal today is world class.”
