Los Angeles FC is going through a very negative streak in MLS: have lost the last three games and adds six days without knowing the victory. This weekend they fell by the minimum (1-0) against Atlanta United and it was the last straw for the patience of Carlos candle, who said he was frustrated by the current situation of the club.
In the post-match press conference, the Mexican did not save anything: “It is very difficult to be positive when you lose a game, for me it was a very close match. We had opportunities and options to seek the goal. Honestly, I don’t like losing so much and I’m getting tired of losing; we have to change this situation and continue working “.
His message was not critical, but realistic. He pointed out that if the team is not in the first places it is “because it is not 100%.” Beyond that, he made no excuses about it. “When you don’t win, you’re frustrated, angry, but I’ve been through those moments throughout my career.He explained.
In LAFC’s last three losses, Vela hasn’t scored a goal. Before those games he had a four-game streak shaking the nets.
The Los Angeles team is in eighth place in the Western Conference. Add 23 points. Despite the slump, getting back in the playoff spots could be a reality as soon as the next round.
On the next day they will face the Vancouver Whitecaps, a team that is second to last in the conference. It is the perfect match for Carlos Vela and his LAFC to get back on the road to victory.
