City on Angel Tasende*:

Spanish left back Jose Angel Tasende, known as Angelino, signed as a first year scholar in July 2013, but was already a regular for City u18s the during the 2012-13 campaign.

Adept defensively and going forward, Angelino can take a good corner and produce a thundering free kick from up to 25 yards.

The Spaniard’s pace and accurate crossing ability give City a valuable attacking outlet down the left, and his late strike against Liverpool last term was nominated for Academy Goal of the Season.

An impressive start to his first season as a scholar led to Angelino’s inclusion in the u19 UEFA Youth League squad, and he was involved in all but one of City’s European fixtures as Patrick Vieira’s men made it all the way to the quarter finals.

A Spanish youth international, Angelino’s eye-catching performances led to the defender making his u21 debut before his 17th birthday. 

*Angelino signed for New York City FC on loan in July 2015 until the end of the 2015 MLS season.
