Los Angeles FC striker Carlos Vela will return to the MLS All-Star Game as one of the great figures of this team, teaming up for the first time with Javier Hernandez for the match to be played this Wednesday at Allianz Field in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
For the popular Mexican player, who is on the best team so far in the MLS regular season, matches like this help to develop soccer in the United States, since the scorers have a better level than the one they face on a daily basis, which is why he celebrated the organization of this match:
“I think this is going to make this league grow more and more, it’s getting better every year,” said Vela. “Having this kind of matches against the Mexican league is always good, because you learn good and bad things what not to do and what to do from other leagues and that makes them gain experience and they can improve in things that are still growing and that’s why the league is the way it is.”
In addition, “El Bombardero” said he was happy to participate in the owner, since it is a reflection of what he has done in the season.
“In the end it is a reward for the work one does in every game and training and obviously it is a reflection of teamwork and we are also part of the teammates who are not here, so we will try to give a good show for people and keep working hard,” said Carlos Vela.
A parameter of what would be the merger of Liga MX with MLS
He stressed that, although it is only a friendly match, this duel is a good parameter of what could be the future merger between both leagues.
“I believe that these types of matches are important, for the moment they are friendly matches. But when there is competition and tournament in between, you give that extra. It’s a good warm-up that comes with Liga MX. We already saw in Los Angeles that people have high expectations and are there supporting, they leave their lives and that’s why we have to put on a good show for them,” said Carlos Vela.
