Miguel Ángel Angulo Valderrey (born June 23, 1977 in Oviedo, Asturias) is a Spanish footballer who is currently unattached.

Predominantly an attacking midfielder, he is also able to play as a right winger and even right back. Basing his football in inexhaustible physical display, Angulo is much appreciated by trainers because of his versatility.

Club career

Angulo began his football career with local Sporting de Gijón, in 1994–95, joining Valencia CF the following season, aged 18. After spending some time with the club's reserves, he would be loaned in 1996–97 to second level outfit Villarreal CF, before returning to Valencia in the following summer.

Never an undisputed starter, Angulo amassed more than 300 appearances in his first ten professional years at Valencia, being a very important element in the Che's league conquest in 2002 and 2004 (netting six goals in 48 contests in the two seasons combined), while also starting in the 2004 UEFA Cup final which the club won, over Olympique de Marseille.

In the summer of 2004, Angulo pulled out of a transfer to Arsenal after a last minute change of heart. His agent claimed this was due to the player's anxiety at moving to London. Angulo had already completed part of his medical;[1] He continued to be heavily played in Valencia in the following three seasons combined, netting 15 times in 93 league matches.

On 20 December 2007 Angulo, along with Santiago Cañizares and David Albelda, was axed from the Valencia squad by new boss Ronald Koeman.[2]

In late April, however, with Koeman's sacking, all three were reinstated by new manager Voro in a squad seriously threatened with relegation, with five remaining games. On April 27, 2008, in a 3–0 home win over CA Osasuna, he returned to action, playing five minutes after having subbed David Villa. On May 11, he started his first post-reinstatement match, scoring in a 5–1 away routing of already relegated Levante UD.

In August 2009, after a mediocre season individually, Angulo was released by Valencia, thus ending a 14-year relationship. Late in the same month, he agreed to a one-year contract with Sporting Clube de Portugal, but after just four months, he was released by the Lisbon club, grossly unsettled, and pondered to retire from the sport.[3]

International career

Angulo made his debut for Spain on November 17, 2004, in a friendly match against England played in Madrid (1–0 win). Going on to collect 11 caps, he never took part in any major competition's final stages, however.
