LAFC Executive Sees "meaningless" a Candle Loan

LOS ANGELES – Carlos Vela is currently the best player in the MLS. He is a goal scorer and assists, winner of the Supporter's Shield with Los Angeles FC, and still in search of breaking the mark of more goals in a single season. Of course, the angelino team does not want the striker to go anywhere.

“Carlos has played a very strong season, had few injuries, almost every game has played them. In November (when the season ends) a loan cannot be made, it would have to be until January and that does not suit us, because next season we are going to play Concacaf Champions League and I can not imagine that that made sense, ”he said in an exclusive interview with ESPN Digital John Thorrington, general manager and executive vice president of LAFC.

"Carlos has great power with his words," John Thorrington said of that statement.

However, Carlos Vela signed for four years with LAFC, as of 2018. The Mexican striker was the first hiring of the nascent franchise. It's just his second year with the American club, and although the schedule is different from the other leagues, they want their 100 percent flagship player.

“For us, every player is always different, we talk to the player, and we try to do what will benefit all parties. We always talk to them so they can succeed and be happy, ”Thorrington said.

In the summer, Barcelona looked for Carlos Vela for a four-month loan, as the same player revealed in the BS podcast, but in the end an agreement was not reached, and the team captain remained in Los Angeles. Candle has even repeated several times, which is seen retreating with blacks and gold.
