The owner of Mexican side Chivas Guadalajara has claimed Arsenal striker Carlos Vela and Tottenham winger Giovani dos Santos are both ‘wasting their careers’ in the Barclays Premier League.
The pair have recently been linked with moves away from their respective teams with Chivas, one of the biggest teams in Mexico, rumoured to be a possible destination.
And owner Jorge Vergara has admitted he feels the pair are not fulfilling their promise in North London but he also insisted they will be too expensive to bring back to their homeland.
Vergara told Talksport: "I wonder why Giovani went from Barcelona and why Carlos Vela might be leaving Arsenal?
"I admit they have great ability, but I feel they are wasting their talent. Hopefully that will change because they are losing the best years of their lives. But these players would be very expensive."
Vela is highly rated at Arsenal and has impressed whilst on loan at Spanish sides but has had to be patient for Arsene Wenger to give him his big break in the first team.
Vela has started just three league games since joining the club in 2006 and is currently behind the likes of Theo Walcott and Andrey Arshavin in the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium.
At Arsenal’s rivals, dos Santos has found first team opportunities hard to come by, starting just twice since moving to White Hart Lane two years ago.
The Tottenham ace forged a great reputation whilst at the Catalan club but was loaned out by Harry Redknapp to Ipswich and Galatasaray in the last couple of seasons.
