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
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."
