Angol out to impress next season

24 May 2013

Lee Angol believes Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth is the man to bring the best out of him in 2013/14.

“I don’t think there is any other manager like Gaz,” Angol told “He’s a really good manager and it’s an honour to work under him. 

The 18-year-old is determined to excel in his second season at Adams Park after agreeing a new one-year contract earlier this week.  “I feel settled. I’m used to everything now, obviously I came from an Ac
my and was used to playing with people the same age. Then I went into a first-team set-up and it was hard to get used to it at first, but I'm used to it now.” 
After making four appearances for the Blues last season, Angol has set his sights on more game-time in the forthcoming campaign, which could include another loan spell. 

He spent the latter part of the campaign at Hendon where he scored three goals in 10 appearances. 

Angol said: “I want to start as many games as possible and help the team get as high as possible. 

“If the timing is right then I’ll have to look at it. If I have to go on loan then I have to go on loan, it depends on what the situation is.” 

Ainsworth says the former Tottenham Hotspur forward's natural ability was a key factor in keeping him at the club. 
He said: “He had a bit of an indifferent season last term – he started a few games under
and then didn’t really feature under me, for no reason other than the players that I did put in did really well for me. 
“I couldn’t change things as everyone was fighting really hard for the positions. Lee has been at Tottenham for the majority of his young career and he’s learnt great football and skills, now hopefully we can see that next season. 
“Going out on loan helped him and I’m really pleased to have him again because I believe there’s something in Lee. He’s got unbelievable feet. I see him as a centre-forward and hopefully he can score a few goals for us this season.”
