Carlos Vela finally back from Controversy to Scoring Sheet

After causing much controversy in recent weeks, striker Carlos Vela finally got back on the scoresheet by securing a goal in the 2-1 loss against Getafe.

The future of the Mexican striker at Real Sociedad has been in doubt for the last few months. His form has been extremely poor to even consider a place in the starting line-up. Despite the club struggling for victories, Vela has been unable to get game time. His situation was made even worse when he was pictured at a Chris Brown concert in Madrid. More worryingly, he missed a training session in order to attend this concert.
