Good News For Wenger As Vela Plays Only 17 Minutes For Mexico

Young Arsenal frontman Carlos Vela was introduced for his good friend Giovani Dos Santos with just 17 minutes on the clock in Mexico’s one nil drama victory over South American outfit Colombia.

That makes sure for Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger that the 21 years old will come back to London without any knock and injury, so that he will be available for Saturday’s Premier League encounter with the Bolton Wanderers at Emirates Stadium.

Vela had some decent runs in his short amount of playing time but he could celebrate the game winning goal with Elias Hernandez in the 89th minute.

Wenger will be very happy to have the Mexican back for the clash after bad news about Robin van Persie (out for about 6 weeks) and last night’s injury to Theo Walcott who turned  his right ankle dangerously, so that people thought that it was broken . With already Nicklas Bendtner and Samir Nasri on the injury list Wenger has to continue the race for the title with the available squad.

Former Chivas Prospect Carlos Vela Booed By Fans At Estadio Omnilife

Arsenal striker Carlos Vela did not get a warm welcome by his former supporters as the Mexican national side suffered a 2:1 defeat in a friendly against Ecuador last night at Estadio Omnilife in Guadalajara.

After his poor performance and his statements about Chivas, that the clubs means nothing for his career, Mexican striker Carlos Vela was the boo man for the fans at the stadium Omnilife.

Vela had a weak performance, provided really nothing in attack and missed a good chance in the first half against Ecuador stopper Max Banguera.

Furthermore the former Chivas youth prospect added that the pitch was in really horrible constitution, so that the poor pitch was the main reason for Mexico’s bad performance. Carlitos said that he never was influenced by the boos.

Vela also said that he prefers to play at the Estadio Azteca as it is always packed with amazing atmosphere, the opposite is happen at the Chivas stadium where several stands were left empty.

The fans have not forgive him that he chooses after the U 17 World Cup to leave Chivas for a career with the Gunners, which started as we know with Celta Vigo and UD Salamanca.
