Premier League Name Translator: #1 Charles Candle

Posted by - January 25, 2010 - Arsenal, Name Translator

OTP’s new feature cuts through the exotic monikers of Premier League imports to make sure you judge the player not the name

Kicking off this feature is Arsenal’s Mexican whizzkid who Arsene Wenger fought hard to sign and promptly sent out on loan to circumnavigate work permit issues. His time on the pitch is increasing but he has yet to meet his full potential at senior level.

That’s right, Carlos Vela is Charles Candle.
