Carlos Vela has mentioned in the past that underneath it all, he's no big soccer fans - despite his natural ability for the sport. For him, it's just a match, and when it's over, its time to move on. But Carlitos was not so indifferent when Bob Bradley decided to take him off as a precaution in yesterday's "El Trafico" clash with LA Galaxy.

The Mexican striker, who scored the equalising goal in the game against their crosstown rivals complained of pains to his right leg but didn't want to leave the game as he was focused on helping his team score a victory against Galaxy.

Bradley however, had other ideas and decided to bring his captain off so that he could receive medical attention. It was a move which sparked Vela's anger, provoking an outburst directed at his coach as he was leaving the field.
