Coach Bradley comments on Vela’s historical season:
“He’s scored goals, sets up goals. He’s also been a fantastic leader and continues to raise the bar for all his teammates. There’s more to go, but he’s done such a fantastic job for us.”
GK Miller added on about the coach’s approach with Vela:
“He came to us and he had a very historic career and he’s won a lot of trophies and been at a lot of historic clubs, but Bob has done a good job challenging him and really pushing him to find a second gear for us. Last year was a good year for him, but this year he’s showing everybody why he’s the best player in the league.”
