Angel Rangel told the Evening Post that he’s set to have talks with chairman Huw Jenkins to settle last week’s dispute regarding Fulham’s interest in the Spaniard.
Rangel did himself no favours when he showed his frustration at the Swansea City chairman, blaming Huw Jenkins for preventing a move to Premiership side Fulham. Jenkins responded and said he got the facts wrong regarding Fulham’s interest in last month’s transfer window.
Rangel believed that the club had rejected a bid from the Cottagers – a bid that matched our asking price, but Jenkins completely denied these claims.
The Spaniard is now set to have talks with the chairman to clear the air:
‘The only thing I can say is that there has been a misunderstanding so the best thing I can do is see the chairman, have a conversation and sort things out like that,’
‘We have different points of view and something’s wrong so we’ll see what that thing is.
‘I showed my frustration, I think that was obvious, but I never said I didn’t want to play for Swansea City.
‘I said that if there was an offer from a Premier League club I’d like to consider it, but in this case I didn’t have any chance to discuss things.
‘But I have to respect the club, I have to respect the fans and everything because Swansea City have given me the chance to be here and I’m very pleased with that.’
‘I have had criticism from so many people because no-one liked what I said, but I was only being honest,’ said the 27-year-old.
‘But I don’t think it’s going to affect me because I always give 100 per cent for the club every single game.
‘Fulham are obviously a massive club and I think every player would like to go and play in the Europa League, the fifth round of the FA Cup and the Premier League.
‘It would have furthered my career, but that is in the past and now I have to refocus and I’m concentrating 100 per cent on getting my place back in the team.’
