Carlos Vela, Superstar, leader of Los Angeles FC

The second year Los Angeles Football Club is a team deep in talent.

Carlos Vela

They have Eddie Segura, Mark-Anthony Kaye, Latif Blessing, Christian Ramirez, Diego Rossi and Carlos Vela as starters.

On the bench, they can come at opposing teams with Lee Nguyen, Adama Diomande and Pablo Sisniega.

But the superstar player on the team is Vela.

In his first MLS season in 2018, the 30-year-old striker finished in the top 10 in goals (14), assists (13), shots (97) and shots on goal (44).

The current 2019 season, sees the Mexican native picking up where he left off with an MLS-leading (11) goals, shots (60), and shots on goal (24) and is tied for fourth in assists (5).

Vela’s 16 combined goals and assists are the most by any player in the opening 10 games of a season in MLS history. Also, the Mexican National Team member is also tied for the fastest to 10 goals to start a regular season (Chris Wondolowski in 2012 and Roy Lassiter in 1999).

Last week, Vela was voted MLS Player of the Month for the second consecutive month, to become only the seventh-ever player in league history to win the award in back-to-back months. The club’s first-ever Designated Player finished the month of April with five goals and two assists.

Vela has played soccer all over the world. He is best known for his years with Arsenal of the Premier League from 2005-2012.
