VELA WAS NEVER HAPPY AT ARSENAL
Mexican star Carlos Vela has said in a recent interview that he was never really happy with life at Arsenal. The Mexican star is currently on loan deal till the end of the season with Spanish club Real Sociedad and has once again reiterated his decision that he would like to make his move permanent the summer.
Carlos Vela was expected to be one of the major stars at Arsenal alongside Cesc Fabregas, but the expected improvement within the Mexican never really came. In the end, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger decided to send him out on loan in order to provide him with more experience of European football.
However, the Mexican has recently admitted that he has never grown to like Arsenal and life in England. As a result, he would like to make his move to Real Sociedad permanent or at least move to another club in Spain in the summer. So far, he has been a great success at Real Sociedad after he has scored a number of goals for the Spanish club. It has helped the Spanish club keep their feet just above the relegation zone. In the 22 appearances he has made for Real Sociedad, Carlos Vela has scored four goals for the club.
“I would stay at Real. I am happy and the people support me. I owe Arsenal affection and gratitude for the opportunity that they gave me, but I was not happy there and this affected my work. It was hard day to day and, when it came to training, I was thinking about going home. Here, however, I am happy and have made good friends,” Carlos Vela said in a recent interview with Sky Sports.
Carlos Vela was signed for € 3 million from Guadalajara by Arsenal back in 2005, and his goals would be sorely missed by the team who are currently third favourites to land the title on latest online Premier League betting markets.
