LAFC urgently needs Carlos Vela's return to the courts if they still want to stay with the MLS Cup. The Mexican player has not played for more than 8 games due to a knee injury. Although he had been training with LAFC, his return date was not yet confirmed but Bob Bradley left a confusing message for the game against LA Galaxy.
It may be by strategy or simply that it is the truth, but Bob Bradley said that Carlos Vela could reappear for the game against LA Galaxy. Although his 100% return is not confirmed, the LAFC coach sowed doubt in the preview of the Los Angeles classic. This is great news for the LAFC fans.
Carlos Vela is LAFC's historic scorer and with him on the court the chances of winning increase. Since Vela injured his knee LAFC has had a huge decline in the MLS standings. At the moment LAFC is in the 4th position. If it can win back its scorer Vela, surely LAFC is a strong candidate to win the MLS Cup.
LA Galaxy continues to receive bad news since in addition to the entire internal crisis that it is suffering; it now learns that Vela may just appear against them again. The LAFC team is a much more vulnerable team when Vela is not on the court. Before the Los Angeles Classic, LAFC fans received the best news that Coach Bob Bradley could announce.
