21 years old Mexican Carlos Vela stays in London when his teammates taking the plane to Barcelona today for their crucial Champions League encounter with Pep Guardiola’s star side on Tuesday evening in the Catalan metropolis.
Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has left the Mexican out of his 18-man travelling squad, instead he has nominated unexperienced players like Fran Mérida or Craig Eastmond. There is no reason confirmed why Carlitos don’t make the squad, but if he did not pick up a knock in Saturday’s match, then it is a not understandable decision by Gunners Manager Arsene Wenger.
Furthermore Vela was fully involved in this morning’s practice unit at Arsenal Training Ground in London, Colney. (Pic: Vela and Mérida at London, Colney April 5)
