Swansea City full back Angel Rangel has hit out at chairman Huw Jenkins, accusing him of blocking a move to Premiership side Fulham.
According to the Spanish defender, Fulham made a late bid for him which matched Huw Jenkins' asking price for the right back, but he didn't respond to their enquiries.
Rangel's quotes will do him no favours, especially with the fans as it's so obvious how much he desires to leave the club for the Premiership.
Some fans have been critical of his performances this season, believing he'd struggle in the top flight.
'To be honest I am disappointed.
'What I know from my agent is that Fulham made an offer and it was the offer the chairman was asking for.
'But then when everything about the deal was sorted and everything was ready, the chairman did not answer his phone or he turned it off.
'I think he asked for quite a lot of money for me and Fulham made a huge effort to get me, but he didn't want to sell.
'I think he asked for quite a high fee and he didn't expect Fulham to agree it.'
'I think the chairman should have answered Fulham's calls — he should have spoken to them.
'I tried to contact myself and eventually spoke to him just before the 5pm deadline, but by then it was too late.'
Rangel has also been linked with Premier League sides West Ham and Wigan along with Scottish Premier League side Celtic, but says he would still 'try my best for Swansea'.
'This is not about wanting to leave Swansea — I love the club and I have always loved it,'
'But when I came to Swansea I had to leave my old club to further my career, and this was the same kind of thing.'
'I have always given my best for Swansea City, but I have always said I would like to consider it if a Premier League club came in for me.
'That has now happened but the chairman did not ask me what I thought.
'Swansea only paid a few thousand pounds for me so they would have got a good profit out of the deal.
'But it didn't happen and I am disappointed. I feel like the chairman has stopped me improving my career.'
'It's not the end of the world. I've always said it would be great to get to the Premier League with Swansea and that's what I will try to do.'
Jenkins response to the above comments coming soon.
