Angel Rangel talks past, present and future in Jack Mag
24th October 2014
Swansea's adopted Welshman Angel Rangel speaks to Jack Magazine about his past, present and future ahead of what would be his 300th appearance for the Swans against Leicester City on Saturday (5.30pm).
Since his arrival from Terrassa in 2007, the Spanish right-back has experienced plenty of change both on and off the pitch during his time in South Wales.
From showering after training with the general public to the dizzy heights of the Premier League, Rangel has married a Welsh girl and built a new house in his adopted city.
It's safe to say that the man from Sant Carles de la Rapita, a small town in Catalonia, has found a home in Swansea.
"I came here to play football and didn't expect to come here to get married and become a Welshman, but it has kind of happened that way," Rangel explained to Jack Magazine.
"My wife's family is Welsh, so my children can speak a bit of Welsh as well as Spanish. They have Welsh accents, especially the little one.
"I feel at home. It's different to Spain, but when you are in a place where the people are very friendly, the fans love you and are passionate about their football, it's easy to settle down.
"Now I have a family here and a house in the city - I couldn't ask for more."
