Mexico says Carlos Vela out of El Tri World Cup team


On Monday Mexico Football Federation announced that Real Sociedad forward Carlos Vela has been ruled out of the 2014 World Cup squad. They released this announcement on their website, translated with Google Translate.

It is reported that today, in Madrid, Spain, Héctor González Iñárritu, Director General of National Teams; Ricardo Pelaez Sports Director of Selection Mayor, manager Miguel Herrera, and Santiago Baños, Technical Assistant, had an encounter with Carlos Vela, Mexican player of the Royal Sociedad, to learn his intentions regarding wearing the shirt of the Mexican national team.

The player said, again, that is not 100 percent from the mental and emotional point of view to face the World.

In the talk, Miguel Herrera confirmed that there is no commitment that seeks to have a National Team player. Therefore, ultimately, Carlos Vela will not be called during this World Cup process.

“I am not seeing the commitment that we need, nor the desire and we have practically discarded him from the process,” Herrera Said, via ESPN FC.

“He doesn’t feel prepared for the process,” Herrera said. “Now that we have qualified, he doesn’t think he deserves to be there and I need players who can make a 100 percent commitment.”
