Angelino joins New York City on loanSpanish defender joins for remainder of MLS season

Jose Angel Tasende, better known as Angelino, has joined New York City for the remainder of the MLS season, and will be eligible to play from July 8th. He is the second player from the EDS to cross the Atlantic, following in Shay Facey's move earlier this year.

“I'm very happy for the opportunity that Manchester City and New York City FC have given me. To be able to play in New York is a great opportunity for me and I am eager to get started. I can't wait to get to New York and join my new teammates,” the defender told

“Being able to train and play in a professional league like MLS, and learn from Coach Kreis will help me develop further as a young player. I’m determined to make the most of my opportunity and give everything I can to help the team in our first season.”

New York Head Coach Jason Kreis was full of praise for the young defender: “Angelino is a talented young player that I became very familiar with when I spent my five months over in Manchester.

“Immediately, he was somebody that I liked. I was impressed with his character, the way he trained and the effort he gave to the team on the pitch. I couldn’t be more pleased that we’ve been able to bring him into this squad.”
