Rangel Wins Player of the Month Vote

Vital Swansea members have voted right-back Angel Rangel as Swansea City's player of the month for August.

The Spaniard took 62% of the vote ahead of striker and top scorer Jason Scotland with 22% in 2nd place.

The full back, who arrived in the summer on a performance-related contract has proved to be a superb coup for Roberto Martinez who signed for what was probably a very low undisclosed fee.

Rangel took Alan Tate's regular right back place at the start of the season as the former Man Utd trainee moved inside to centre back.

"Rangel (just) ahead of Scotland for me, mainly because he's played well in every game"
It was not easy taking over Tate at right back who's owned that place for the past 2 seasons forging a great partnership with Britton in front of him.

Rangel has fitted in brilliantly at the back however and has played consistently well since the opening game of the season. He's showed excellent passing ability and likes to get forward whenever possible.

Despite his commitment, ability going forward and winning the fans' vote for player of the month, he still believes he needs to work on aspects of his game.

Angel Rangel said last week:

'At the moment I am very happy with things at Swansea,'

'I feel I am making a big commitment to the team and I think I have adapted well.

'The game here is very physical and you can't rest, but I feel I am becoming a better player because of the physical aspect.

'But there are things I feel I must improve on in defence. I think I need to get better at one-on-one situations.'


He also complimented the welcome he has received in Swansea and added:

'All the people here are so nice to us,'

'They welcome us with open arms - the manager, the players and the supporters have helped us settle here.

'The fans make a lot of noise for us. It feels as though we have always been here.'


In the vote, Ferrie Bodde followed in 3rd place with 10%, and he may have received more voted had he not ended the month with a sending off against Doncaster.

Robinson was next with 5% while 1% voted for another player.

In our new poll, we want to know your views on our current defence. Roberto Martinez has turned his priorities to bringing in a centre back on loan, and if we do, who should he replace at the back?
