After sitting out on the sidelines for a long time, because of a suspect ankle injury, which he suffered in the opening clash of this years CONCACAF Gold Cup, young Arsenal hotshot Carlos Vela is preparing himself with his national teammates for the World Cup Qualifier against El Salvador tonight at the Estadio Azteca.
Vela has just returned after a long absence in Arsenal’s Carling Cup clash with West Bromwich Albion, as Arsene Wenger’s young guns have find a way to get in the next round, but first of all it needed a fantastic comeback performance from the young Mexican. Days later Vela has received from the Manager 13 minutes match time in the UEFA Champions League clash with Olimpiacos Piräus. He really showed in both matches that he is on the way to coming back, but of course it needs time to find a place in Arsene Wenger’s strong 18-man squad for the Premier League.
This week on Arsenal TV Online, Vela has admitted that he did not want to go out on loan in the winter transfer window and has denied the rumours which has linked him with Fulham Football Club as well as Spanish La Liga side Deportivo Xerez.
El Tri coach Javier Aguirre could decide tonight to bring the 20 years old from the bench, because of lacking match time.
