If we talk about teams that have lacked consistency in the 2021 MLS regular season so far, we have to talk about LAFC. Bob Bradley's boys are going through a rough patch, having failed to win in their last six games, and Carlos Vela has shown his frustration.
Los Angeles haven't emerged victorious in the current campaign since July 17 when they beat Real Salt Lake 2-1 at Banc of California Stadium. Last weekend, they've suffered their eighth defeat of the season at the hands of Atlanta United.
They are currently out of the playoff spots in the Western Conference standings, something that proves they need to get their act together. Carlos Vela knows it, and he can't wait for his team to get results again.
Carlos Vela admits being tired of losing as LAFC go six straight games without a win
LAFC have lost four of their last six matches and have seen themselves dropping to the eighth place of the standings. Carlos Vela has expressed his unhappiness due to this streak:
"It's hard to take positive things when you lost a game. For me it was a really close game, both teams had chances, created good options to score a goal, but we didn't take any opportunities. They take one and they take the points. Not much to say, we have to keep working. Honestly, I don't want to lose more, I'm tired to lose, so we'll have to change this situation, change this stretch and keep working," Vela said in the postgame press conference following LAFC's loss to Atlanta, as quoted by TUDN in Spanish.
"If you don't win games, if we're not in the higher part of the table is because the team is not at its best, it is not at 100% and obviously that is being evident when it comes to winning games or in the important moments. There are no excuses, we simply have to move on, work, give our best, and change that situation, look for another chance to win and put ourselves in the position that this club deserves," he added.
Los Angeles aren't far from the playoff spots, but it's time for them to step up and put this terrible streak to an end. Vela knows it, and he is committed to delivering his best to help LAFC bouncing back.
