Javier Hernández had everything to be the best footballer that our country gave after Hugo Sánchez, at least in the position of center forward. He had an excellent participation in the Chivas Rayadas de Guadalajara and his good performances and his forcefulness within the area took him to the football stratosphere when prior to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa he was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United.
With the most emblematic technician in the history of Red Devils, Chicharito reached his best football. He was close to tying the record for the most goals in his first season in Europe (which still belongs to Luis García with 21 goals) and was champion on several occasions in the Premier League, which aroused interest from other great teams from the old continent.
When Ferguson retired, his ordeal began and after a good spell at Real Madrid under Carlo Ancelotti, his career began to decline to the point that, in the winter of 2019 and with just under six months at Sevilla, he was forced to reach MLS with the LA Galaxy, promising to match Carlos Vela’s performances, something that, to date, has not happened.
Already in the United States his level fell, the injuries complicated him and his personal situation ended up ruining his career, which, given all these situations, begins to take dramatic overtones of something that could have been and never happened, to Javier was mistreated by the technicians in Europe, the press in our country never left him alone, and what seemed like a brilliant career gradually fell into madness.
Today Chicharito is removed from Gerardo “Tata” Martino’s selection. The rumors of a probable exit from the Galaxy are growing and the probable return to the MX League looks closer than ever, something that, from the point of view of the experts, would be to come to finish a race that took a nosedive later of his arrival at West Ham United.
Javier has ensured that he can resume his level, that he can return to the national team and that if he returns to our league it will not be to retire, the start of a new MLS campaign is near and this could be the last opportunity to play what happened from the sublime to the ridiculous.
