Angulo will represent Mumbai City FC in the ongoing season and he revealed his targets with the club.
Angulo said while talking in the press conference, “My personal target is always to help the team as much as I can. Obviously, I’m a striker so I should score goals, but I can’t say any concrete number of goals. My main target is to help the team with my experience, my skills, with everything. Most important are the common targets for me to join Mumbai City FC: to win the ISL and the trophy”.
Meanwhile, Mumbai City FC was able to go all the way in the previous season as they had defeated ATK Mohun Bagan by 2-1 in the final of the tournament. Angulo also disclosed the reason which prompted him to join the reigning champions.
Angulo added, “After a good season for me, I moved to Mumbai City FC. This club was the only place I wanted to be as it was the best club last year, they won everything. I’m extremely proud to join them and I hope this season will be even better than the last one. This season, I’m here to help them [Mumbai City FC] achieve everything like they did last year, and I believe we have a good team and enough squad depth to do so”.
The linchpin forward also revealed his experience of playing for FC Goa in the previous season. Angulo had played a crucial role in taking the Gaurs to the semifinals.

At the end for my club, for FC Goa with my appearance in the semi-finals, we lost on penalties against Mumbai City, and I also got the Golden Boot and some other trophies during the season. So, overall, I was very happy with my performance. This means my job was very good and journalists, players, and everyone recognized it. I was immensely happy to come here last year, I enjoyed the country and the league which was quite successful for me”.
