Carlos Vela to miss LA Galaxy game
Los Angeles FC coach Bob Bradley said that the Mexico international will return to training next week and he will miss the match against the Galaxy.
Carlos Vela has been dealing with a hamstring injury all season with the Los Angeles FC and he is set to miss tomorrow’s game against the Galaxy at the Dignity Health Sports Park. The Mexico international got injured in the first game of the campaign and he missed the next three, including the 2-1 loss against the Los Angeles Galaxy.
He returned to full fitness on week 5 of the MLS season against Seattle and LAFC lost on the road with Vela playing only 20 minutes. He reached full-fitness and played the next 16 games and scored 5 goals and gave four assists. Unfortunately, he got injured on 22 August in the 2-1 loss against Vancouver and he has missed six consecutive matches.
Ruled out to play ‘El Tráfico’
“Carlos has been working with the medical staff on the side and the plan is that he will start full training next week,” said Bob Bradley at Saturday's press conference prior to going on the road to face the Los Angeles Galaxy.
Los Angeles FC have no room for mistakes with seven games left of the 2021 Major League Soccer regular season. The team from Los Angeles have let points slip away earlier in the campaign and they sit in ninth place with 33 points, four away from the playoff places.
