Angel Breaks Red Bulls' Scoring Record
Newark Ledger, September 29th, 2009 2:45PM

MOST COMMENTED

On Saturday, Juan Pablo Angel became the New York Red Bulls' all-time leading scorer with his 46th goal for the club in a 1-1 tie with Chivas USA. "It's an honor to be part of the history of this franchise,'' Angel said.

Angel broke Clint Mathis' record of 45 goals in 32 fewer games (78 compared to 110). Giovanni Savarese is next on the list with 44. In his three years in New York, Angel has been a model of consistency, a deserving face of the franchise. He scored 19 regular-season goals his first year and 14 last season when the Red Bulls reached MLS Cup. This season, despite the Red Bulls' dismal 4-17-6 record, Angel has 10 goals as he continues to play through nagging injury.

"It's well deserved,'' Red Bulls interim coach Richie Williams said. "Juan Pablo has been a great pro, a great player since he arrived here. He's been one of the best, if not the best, strikers in this league over the past three seasons. It's just a credit to him, his ability as a soccer player and his work ethic."
