Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has cited International football and intense travelling as the reasons behind Carlos Vela’s continued absence from the team.
Vela is yet to make his Premiership or Champions League debut, and has been left frustrated on the sidelines. But Wenger admits his hand has been forced over his involvement, with a troublesome groin issue hampering his progress for Mexico.
“We don’t see Vela a lot because he goes to Mexico last week and then goes again next week to Jamaica to play two games. Then he will come back a bit late for the game we play away.”
However, whilst the 19-year-old is not currently in the team, the Frenchman has promised that Carlos will get regular football, but he must be patient for the time being.
“But I am confident he will play an important part in the season, but at the moment he is away. He is a top class player.”
