Was successful or not or whether it got To Carlos valarina I I don't know but so What do you think this was an effort to Put pressure on him but the fact that This is out there shows me how desperate They are sebby they're grasping us Straws they're looking for anything at This moment because quite frankly right Now they don't think what they have is Enough yeah I think it's it's probably a Fair assessment right they're looking Around they're looking at all the Injuries and Tata Martino in this moment Of desperation is saying yeah can I get Carlos to come out of retirement and Maybe help me we always talked about This hurricane and you always kind of Left this little sliver of hope you said As long as Carlos vela's still bawling That door is never really going to be Closing and here you are right and yet What we learned is that at the end of The day Carlos Vela does really not want To be with the Mexican national team Because the thought was Boy doesn't want To go to qualifiers he doesn't want to Be away from his family but maybe if he Just made it really really easy for him He might play no no this would be the Easiest of all right just show up to the World Cup ball out spot is made for you And still he doesn't want that that Tells you how far away from reality it Is that anybody who has a thought of

Carlos Vela representing Mexico again in A big time yeah you know how much I love To be right at your expense but but not Not on this one I mean this is a player That was spurned and spurned hard by the Mexican Federation at one point and he Is over it he wants nothing to do with The Mexican national team you could say What you want about Carlos Vela but you Have to respect the man you have have to Respect his decision and it is what it Is Case Closed he said it himself but The fact that so many the fact that the Mexican Federation if this is true is Still trying to reach something that Speaks volumes to me the action speaks Volumes yeah they are so scared so Nervous that what they have is not only Not enough but that it may be so Historically bad that they all get fired Can I can I tell you I don't mind the Action like if I'm if I'm analyzing Tata Martino or FMF I want them to turn over Every stone in pursuit of making this Team as good as possible if there was a One percent chance they felt that Carlos Vela would say yes I'm I'm glad that They called because I don't really see What you lose by making this call but I Do watch your show in Spanish and I did Hear what Mauricio Pedrosa said he said It will hurt the other players in the Locker room what message does it send to Them basically saying hey this guy's

Been retired for three years and we're Still desperately hoping that he'll come And bail us out will the players in the Locker room see this and be bothered by Do you believe that if there's a player In that locker room that feels Comfortable right now with their Position in the Mexican national team That's the problem and that's why they Are where they are today as a football Nation head into this world cup with so Much uncertainty and so much doubt you Need the best players and you had Juan Carlos here in this very show say I want The best players playing in the best Possible uh positions and in the best Possible Rhythm heading into this world Cup Well thank you very much for watching ESPN on YouTube for more sports Highlights and Analysis be sure to Download the ESPN app and for live Streaming premium content and let's not Forget as well ESPN FC seven days a week Subscribe to ESPN Plus
