VELA ESTABLISHES HIMSELF
The Mexican striker Carlos Vela is regarded as one of the highly rated youngsters in European football, but for some reason or the other, he did not manage to produce the goods at Arsenal. He has been part of the Spanish club Real Sociedad for a few years now, and he has become one of the established players within the Spanish club.
As a result, there have been recent rumours that Arsenal will be willing to take him back to the Emirates stadium. The reports appeared to suggest that the Mexican has a clause in his contract that would allow Arsenal to buy him back at the end of the season.
Vela, though, has categorically stated that he is extremely happy at Real Sociedad and he would not like to return to Arsenal. The Mexican found first team opportunities limited at the Emirates stadium. Due to his impressive form, Sociedad are currently in the sixth position with an outside chance of finishing in the top four. They have 41 points on the board, while the fourth placed Malaga have 43 points. The Mexican is one of the top scorers in the Spanish league after having scored 12 goals in the league alone. Vela arrived at Arsenal back in 2005 after having won the FIFA U-17 World Cup.
"After being here for a year and knowing what my teammates are like on and off the pitch, it makes it easier to decide whether to stay or go to a new team, where you don't know what's going to happen. The team has proven that it is very good, that we have excellent players and we can compete with anyone. I'm talking about giving more, not just this season, but over the coming years. I think the team can improve even more," revealed Vela.
