Gunners winger Carlos Vela has a really frustrating campaign, as he suffered another injury in Mexico’s friendly encounter against New Zealand at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on Wednesday night.
The Mexican was introduced for striker Aldo Di Nigris after halftime to play up front with EL Chicharito Javier Hernandez. The 21 years old Chivas hotshot then find first the net with a very fine header following of a set piece by Carlos Salcido in minute 54.
But then Carlos Vela made it 2:0 as he showed body strength with a dribbling through the whole New Zealand defensive area on his way to the goalkeeper box, where he was able to slot home with his right foot into the far corner.
Later on, an injury flooded campaign continued for the 21 years old as he limped off the pitch with a worst injury. Vela Fans and Arsenal Supporters as well as Gunner’s Manager Arsene Wenger must be seriously frustrated and it should be hard to explain to them, where the sense is to send Vela to a Mexico friendly instead to gaining full fitness at Arsenal’s training facilities.
It is expected that Vela will be out again for a few weeks, so that he will be not able to feature for the Gunners in the next month. But there is no news really how serious the injury is.
Carlos will arrive on Friday in London, so that Arsenal’s Medical department have a view on it.
