Carlos Tevez was once the darling of the Argentina national team, but he has been on the fringes of the national team selection for the last few years.
Lionel Messi has been able to take his place, although there was initial resistance towards this move from the supporters. Messi was seen as a traitor at Argentina after having left as a youngster for Barcelona. There were even rumours that Messi thought about playing for the Spanish national team. Tevez, however, played in Argentina for most of his youth before moving to European football with West Ham.
Carlos Tevez will be regarded as a journeyman in football after having played for several clubs like West Ham, Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus only in European football.
After having returned to Argentina in the summer to play for his hometown club Boca Juniors, this was seen as a last move for the striker. Given that he is 32 years of age, this move would comfortably see him towards the end of his career with no need of moving elsewhere. This may not be the case after Tevez’ agent claimed that a move to China may be on the cards.
Real Sociedad’s Carlos Vela has been fined after it was discovered that he attended a concert of Chris Brown and the Mexican player had told his club that he was going to miss a training session due to suffering from gastroenteritis but Vela was perfectly fine and he just used that as an excuse to skip a Monday training session from his team.
Carlos Vela is a Mexican player who managed to make a name for himself back in 2013 and 2014 with a number of impressive performances, Vela used to be a truly dominating player some time ago but things began to slip up for him and in this current season, reports are even claiming that this is his worst year as a player of Real Sociedad but he has recently shown signs of revival.
Carlos Vela’s career has been in the limbo for the last few years.
After being linked with a return back to Arsenal, the striker has failed to hit the same heights in recent times. This has seen him struggle for first-team opportunities in the last couple of seasons. After being used to making 35 or more league appearances in his first two years at Real Sociedad, Vela is on course to recording his worst season – in terms of league appearances – in the 2015-16 season. He has scored only two goals in 15 appearances for the Spanish outfit.
Arsene Wenger once again have to answer questions about his team being able to compete in the Premier League title race.
Real Sociedad manager David Moyes has showered a lot of praise on striker Carlos Vela and has stated that the Mexican international is not going anywhere.
Vela rose to prominence with Premier League club Arsenal but he has really shined at Real Sociedad. Even though his performances last season were not up to the mark, he is slowly starting to establish himself and starting to make sure that he makes every game counts. Speaking ahead of the game with Sporting Gijon, the former Manchester United manager says that he will make sure that Vela stays at the club beyond the transfer window.
Real Sociedad are reportedly looking to partner Carlos Vela with English forward Danny Ings.
Due to the presence of British coach David Moyes, the Spanish club have been linked with a move for the Burnley forward. He is out of contract in a few months and the 22-year-old will be a great foil for Vela. The Mexican forward had an injury ravaged campaign has he managed only 29 appearances in all competitions. A return of 10 goals meant that David Moyes had a big headache when it comes to finding a regular goalscorer. Hence, it is understood that the Scot has put forward the name of Ings.
Carlos Vela is regarded as one of the top strikers for the Mexican national team, but he has not featured for the national team in major tournaments due to one reason or the other. His most recent pullout came during the 2014 World Cup when Vela withdrew from the national team due to unknown reasons.
It is widely expected that the national team would not be calling up the Real Sociedad striker due to his uncertain nature. However, rumours have once again cropped up that the former Arsenal man could be in the squad during the Copa America or the Gold Cup.
7 goals and 3 assists is what Carlos Vela has contributed for Real Sociedad in this season.
The Mexican player is the top goal-scorer of his club and one of the players who has managed to create more assists as well. There is no doubt whatsoever that Carlos Vela plays a huge role for Real Sociedad and even though the Mexican player still hasn’t fully recovered from a surgery that he sustained earlier in January, Vela managed to play for a few minutes during Real Sociedad’s League match against Cordoba.
