MLS MVP Carlos Vela will skip LAFC's trip to Orlando tourney

LOS ANGELES (AP) Major League Soccer MVP Carlos Vela will not accompany Los Angeles FC to the league's return tournament in Orlando this month.

Vela announced his decision Monday, citing his concern for the health of his family, including his pregnant wife, Saioa.

"I always want to give everything I have to my club, our fans and supporters and the city of LA," Vela said in a statement. "However, it is in the best interest of the health of my family to stay home and be with my wife during what is a risky pregnancy. I will miss being with my teammates and coaches, but I will be cheering and supporting LAFC from a distance." (MORE)
