The Los Angeles MLS team had just run out of their top scorer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and in order to replace him, they turned to see Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernández, something that in a short time has proven not to be the best decision why the numbers of the player in the LA Galaxy are among the worst that have been seen.
He has a goal in 9 games this season.
After his time at West Ham, the Mexican arrived at Sevilla, where he wanted to shine, but the lack of minutes ended up filling him up. He received an offer from the LA Galaxy and he did not hesitate to accept it to seek to make history in that team, but things have not turned out well.
In addition to being one of the best salaries in MLS, many think that ‘Chicharito’ came a little ‘raised’ to the league, why when they presented him as a new reinforcement, he said: “I am a legend of Mexican soccer”, something that has not been able to demonstrate in the American league.

His last and only goal was on July 13.
From there, he has played 6 more games and in none has he scored. That means that his productivity is .11 goals per game, something very low for someone who cost a transfer of 9.4 million dollars, three years guaranteed, around 6 million guaranteed annual salary and many incentives.
Some call it the LA Galaxy’s worst investment. Some fans of the team went to the jugular of the Mexican, describing his performance as “garbage” and “terrible”, especially because he wins a lot, but that money is worth very little.
Zlatan’s ‘perfect replacement’ hasn’t worked out.
In his last 7 games with ‘Chicharito’ on the court, the team of Los Angeles has added 6 losses and 1 draw, without a goal from the Mexican. In 16 games, the Galaxy added 21 goals in favor to 34 against and it should be noted that only 1 has been from Hernández.
Its price is falling more and more. When he signed for Sevilla it had a price of 12 million euros, in December it dropped to 9 million euros, then in February it dropped more with 8.6 and currently, worth only 6.5 million euros.
The Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernández’s numbers with the LA Galaxy They show that it was not a good investment and in case they do not improve, it is clear that the team lost much more than it gained.
