LAFC's Carlos Vela on the cover of GQ Mexico magazine

Carlos Vela has been making all sorts of headlines since he arrived in LAFC as the club's first-ever signing prior to the 2018 season and went on to have the single most productive offensive season in MLS history in 2019. And now he's even crossed over to the world of fashion, style and culture.

Vela is featured on the most recent cover of GQ Mexico, the Spanish-language version of the well-known men's magazine.

The 31-year-old sat down with GQ for an in-depth interview, touching on why moving to Los Angles was not only the best decision for himself but also his family, the loneliness that accompanied his long European career, and his at-times tumultuous relationship with Mexican soccer.
