Arsenal’s Carlos Vela Gets Mexico Call For Spain Friendly

Arsenal striker Carlos Vela got called up by Mexico’s  interim coach Enrique Meza for the upcoming friendly with World Champions Spain at the Azteca Stadium next Wednesday.

Vela received the call along with 12 other players who made the squad for the FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa, where the El-Tri were eliminated by Lionel Messi’s Albiceleste.

The interim coach has also included Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez, Tottenham’s Giovani Dos Santos as well as new Hammer Pablo Barrera.

Many Gunners supporters will dislike this call up, because it is once again in a period where Carlos needs to prepare himself for the Premier League. The Mexican was really impressive in the pre season so far and now he got again a silly call up for an unimportant friendly with the risk to get injured.

We are all not pleased with this decision by the Mexican FA, but Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger can’t do anything against it and Carlos himself as well.

Vela Hands Small Disciplinary Action For Passport Story In Front Of Spurs Clash

21 years old Mexican World Cup hope Carlos Vela has handed small disciplinary action by his club for losing his passport in front of the Champions League encounter with Barcelona last week.

Vela shows totally commitment to the club as he went straight last week to the Mexican embassy in London to apply for a new one, which he finally got then.

These things can happen in life, so that a strong punishment on Vela because of this issue is definitely the wrong action. Furthermore the Gunners management should make sure that they protect him in situations like that (Media,Papers) and you have to credit Arsene Wenger that he exactly did that. On the other site you have to show the young Mexican that this is unacceptable.

This action by the Arsenal Manager shows that he has much faith in the young Mexican and that he wants to continue working with Carlitos, as well as you can see it on the punishment that Vela has received in front of the Spurs game on Wednesday. The young forward has to feature in a special-intensive training session with a couple of coaches with the target to get Vela back on full fitness as we all know what he can do if he is totally fit.

It is clear that Wenger wants to get Vela back on the road, as he can make maybe the difference in the race for the Premier League title.

Do you think it is a fair punishment by Arsenal Football Club?

Give us your mind in the sidebar voting!!

Vela hopes to sit on the bench when the Gunners take on their London rivals Tottenham Hotspurs on Wednesday evening at White Hart Lane.

In other news, El-Tri teammate Javier “EL Chicharito” Hernandez joins Manchester United for next season. Hernandez who currently plays for Chivas Guadalajara was a long time target of several clubs, but now it is clear that United won the race for his services.
