The former Arsenal striker Carlos Vela has said that the fact that he scored in the 2-0 win over Zaragoza was not the most important aspect, but the fact that Real Sociedad managed to take all three points from the match. The Arsenal striker recently completed the permanent move to the Spanish club Real Sociedad after growing frustrated about the lack of first-team opportunities at the Emirates stadium. He spent the last season on loan at the club and made it no secret that he would like to make the move permanent. He recently completed the switch for a fee of around £ 4 million.
He has had a good impact at the club in the opening league matches of the campaign. Last season, Carlos Vela scored 12 goals throughout the season. Now, he has managed to get off the mark after scoring in the 2-0 win over Zaragoza. Speaking after the match, he has said that his first goal of the season will give him great confidence in the forthcoming matches, but the most important aspect was three points. Carlos Vela managed to score the first goal of the season from the penalty that was awarded in the 61st minute.
“The important thing is that we won. I would like to score in every game, but at the start of the season it is always difficult, everyone is trying to reach their peak level,” said Carlos Vela after the match. “We had a good reaction in the second half. We generated chances on goal that guided us to victory,” said the manager Philippe Montanier after the match. This match was extremely important for Real Sociedad especially given that they are coming into this on the back of the 1-0 defeat suffered at the hands of Mallorca last weekend.
