Vela calls for La Real unity

Real Sociedad striker Carlos Vela believes his teammates must unite to reverse their disappointing start to the season.

La Real are currently one point off the relegation places, having won just once from the opening seven League games, and the Mexican feels it is time things started to change at Anoeta.

“Right now things are not good. We’d like to be further up the table, with more points, so now is the time for us all to pull together and work even harder.

“But what has happened has happened and we can’t change that. The only thing we can do is look ahead so we can do something about it,” he told the club’s official website.

The 25-year-old, signed from Arsenal in summer 2012 after a successful loan spell, feels the way forward is going to require a great mental effort from everybody.

“A game lasts for 90 and we must be very focused, very methodical, and perhaps that is what has been missing. We also need to score the first goal in games because to come from behind is always difficult.

“I think we need to analyse the reasons for what is happening to us and try to change things. It’s important to change the dynamic of the team and we need a victory where we play well and get the fans behind us.

“Hopefully that will happen on Monday against Getafe and we can then go on a good run.

“Winning would be a good way to reinforce the team and make us see things differently,” he concluded.
