Carlos Vela did not let the pressure of the season's top scorer title distract him. For the closure of the regular season, the Mexican only thought of attacking the Colorado Rapids’ goal.

“I felt no pressure at all. Since we reached the last match, I thought ‘I’ve already done the effort, it’s the last push,’” said Vela, after scoring a hat trick that made the LAFC win (3-1) and that granted the Mexican the historic title of top scorer in a single MLS season.

“I want to thank everyone who was part of this; we must keep working. It’s going for more, being ambitious: hopefully we will win the tournament,” highlighted Vela, who has chosen to drift apart from the new cycle of the Mexican soccer team led by Gerardo Martino.

Regarding the second goal of the match in the Banc of California Stadium against legendary goalkeeper Tim Howard, Carlos Vela explained that the scissors of the 2-0 were a “hard to explain goal, you think in nothing, only on keeping scoring to increase the record; the move goes well and [you score] a nice goal. All my goals are special, the important thing is that all the objectives from the beginning of the season were achieved.”

The Mexican player, originally from Cancún, Quintana Roo, is not worried about the MVP title.

“The MVP is not my decision; I have given the best I had, I helped my team to make history, there are chances but we have yet to see if we can make it.”

Carlos Vela also won the MLS MVP title and received the Landon Donovan MVP  Award for 2019 season.

Vela, who scored in 25 matches out of 34 with his team in the regular phase, is also the first Mexican soccer player to receive the MVP since the league started in 1996.
