Description

Ángel Luis Rodríguez Díaz (born 26 April 1987), known simply as Ángel, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Getafe CF as a forward.

Born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Ángel emerged through the youth ranks of local CD Tenerife, scoring seven second division goals in his first full professional season. He split 2007–08 on loan to two third level teams, including Real Madrid Castilla.

Returning to the Canary Islands for 2008–09, Ángel was an important attacking element as the club returned to La Liga after a seven-year absence. He made his debut in the competition on 29 August 2009 in a 0–1 away loss against Real Zaragoza (ten minutes played), and contributed with one goal in 24 games – all as a substitute – during the campaign, in an eventual relegation.

In summer 2010, Ángel returned to division two as he signed with Elche CF. On 23 April 2011 he scored all of his side's goals in a 3–0 home win over SD Huesca, and netted a total of 29 times during his spell with the Valencians, including once in the unsuccessful promotion playoffs against Real Valladolid.

Ángel signed with top flight team Levante UD on 15 June 2012, agreeing to a 2+1 contract. He scored two goals in the UEFA Europa League in the first half of the season but, after seeing playing opportunities limited, returned to former club Elche in January 2013, on loan.

Levante did not renew his contract after the end of the 2013–14 campaign and, on 9 July, Ángel joined newly promoted SD Eibar on a one-year deal, with an option to extend for a further year. On 13 July 2015 he signed a two-year deal for Zaragoza, in the second level.

On 7 June 2017, Zaragoza announced that they had ceased all negotiations regarding a possible contract renewal after the player said that he would rather lose against his former club Tenerife in the last match of the season, in which he scored a career-best 21 goals. On 6 July, he signed with Getafe CF from the top tier until 2020.
