Mexican striker Carlos Vela was recently branded as a traitor by the supporters of the country. This is after the former Arsenal striker decided not to be part of the national team at the World Cup 2014.
Mexico only just managed to get into the competition through the play-offs after beating New Zealand. After the appointment of a new coach, they form has substantially improved in the last couple of weeks. Still, they lack a top class centre forward to be paired along with Hernandez of Manchester United.
The Mexican footballer- Carlos Vela will not participate in the 2014 World Cup. The former striker for the club Arsenal has obviously stated various other reasons for refusing to be a part of the World Cup 2014. The Mexican Football Association on the other hand made an announcement that Carlos Vela is not emotionally or mentally prepared to be a part of the World Cup.
December 2013 was fantastic for Carlos Vela. He produced top performances for his club Real Sociedad in almost every league outing and ended up becoming the player of the month leaving behind the great players like Cristiano Ronaldo.
This is Vela’s third season at Sociedad. He made his way to the club as a loan signing in August 2011 and performed well enough to earn a permanent contract at the end of that season.
In the last couple of seasons, he has been the leading forward for Real. He has rarely failed.
Real Sociedad’s Carlos Vela scored 4 times in their encounter against Celta de Vigo some weeks ago, which lifted the spirit and hope for the Spanish team as were scheduled to go head to head with Shaktar Donetsk only 4 days later and Sociedad were in need of some points in order to stay alive for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
The newly appointed manager of the Mexican national football team, Victor Manuel Vucetich, has named 5 Europe-based players for El Tri’s upcoming couple of World Cup qualifiers and to everybody’s surprise, Carlos Vela is not one of those players.
The statements that Vela and Vucetich had made a few days ago had indicated that Vela was set to make his way back into the national team, but, that hasn’t happened. Vela has still been kept out.
Carlos Vela is a professional footballer from Mexico who currently plays for the Spanish League side Real Sociedad as a forward. Vela started playing football at a very young age and was snapped by the Mexican club Chivas de Guadalajara where he spent his years progressing through the academy ranks.
Once again the football season in England has come to an end and with very little happening in terms of football competitions over the summer for big fans of the game it may seem like forever till the first game of next season.
Carlos Vela has said that he doesn’t want to return to his old club Arsenal. Vela is currently a contracted player of Real Sociedad.
Vela had played for Sociedad on loan in the 2011-12 season. At the start of this season, the Spanish club decided to make the deal permanent. Sociedad paid 4 million Pounds as the transfer fee for buying Vela from Arsenal.
Vela has shown good form for Sociedad in the ongoing season. He has played 27 matches in the season so far and has the found the net 12 times.
The Mexican striker Carlos Vela is regarded as one of the highly rated youngsters in European football, but for some reason or the other, he did not manage to produce the goods at Arsenal. He has been part of the Spanish club Real Sociedad for a few years now, and he has become one of the established players within the Spanish club.
As a result, there have been recent rumours that Arsenal will be willing to take him back to the Emirates stadium. The reports appeared to suggest that the Mexican has a clause in his contract that would allow Arsenal to buy him back at the end of the season.
The Real Sociedad manager Philippe Montanier has said that his team are a little too far from the Europa league spot this season, despite the best efforts of the Mexican striker Carlos Vela.
