Many Arsenal fans are reflecting on throwback footage of Carlos Vela after videos of him during his time with the north London club circulated on Twitter.
Gooners are making the most of their time in self-isolation by watching throwback videos of their favourite Arsenal moments and it seems as if some supporters were enjoying Vela wearing the red and white shirt.
The Mexican international scored 11 times and provided a further eight assists in 62 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners, before joining the likes of Real Sociedad and Los Angeles FC. He has also featured for West Brom in the Premier League, as per Transfermarkt. The 31-year old has now scored a total of 147 goals and provided a further 80 assists in his 428-game career thus far (also via Transfermarkt).
These Arsenal supporters did not forget about Vela’s contributions to the Gunners and reflected on his time with the north London club:
