Javier Chicharito Hernandez has reportedly moved to the American Major League Side L.A Galaxy. The former Manchester United and Sevilla player made the move early this week just fews months in Spain where he moved just recently. The 31-year-old Mexican had been struggling for games at Sevilla following his summer move from the Hammers in England.
According to the reports, his signings was made public on Monday and he will be the highest paid player in the MLS. The player who was the highest before was Zlatan Ibrahimovic who moved out of the club earlier this year January. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was star player in the American Major League Side(MLS) and was receiving $7.2m (£5.5m) per year which was in 2019.
The Mexican expressed his joy saying “It was the right time, the right opportunity,” “Like when people describe me playing,” Hernández said. “You know, that he’s always in the right place at the right time.” He said praising himself.
Javier Chicharito Hernandez Perfect Replacement for Ibra
The team needed an attacker to succeed Zlatan Ibrahimovic who has now joined his former side AC Milan. Chicharito seems to be the perfect replacement for the Swedish super star. LA Galaxy general manager Dennis te Kloese said: “We think he can be one of Major League Soccer’s best attacking threats. “Javier has consistently scored goals in top leagues throughout the world and has been his country’s most successful player over the last decade.”
L.A Galaxy have not finished higher than fifth in the Western Conference since 2016 and won the last of their five MLS Cups in 2014. They need good force to take them back to the winning days. During his first interview since signing with the team, he gave the media a perfect simile to describe his arrival onto Los Angeles.
His inconsistent playing time with the Spanish side Sevilla has propelled his move to the American club side. His demotion came at a time when Major League Soccer’s reputation had evolved to where a 31-year-old player of his stature would consider playing in the league.
The Deal Came the Right time Javier Chicharito Hernandez
“It was the right time, the right opportunity,” the Mexican exclaim. He is a football figure to recon with, he has played for Chivas of Mexico, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen. Javier Chicharito Hernandez has also played for West Ham before moving to Spain again to play for Sevilla last year.
Javier Chicharito Hernandez was excited the offer came as at the time it came because, he still wants to play but he is not given the playing time in Sevilla. Chircharito is his courntry’s highest goal scorer ever, great Mexicans like Jonathan dos Santos and Urel Antuna has already set a good foundation for him in the MLS.
Hernández also pointed to great players who have played the English league before joining the MLS. He spoke David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Carlos Vela. He said his former team mate dos Santos had earlier told him about the league he side “ the league is very underrated.” “I really believe you don’t go there to retire.”
“I’m going to be playing,” he said. “That’s what I want in my life. People are going to say it was because I couldn’t make it [in Europe], but sometimes in football there are things that are not in your hands. The last two years, the managers decided on giving confidence to other players rather than me. And now, the L.A. Galaxy, the manager of the club and the league, are telling me. They told me: ‘Look, Javier, we want to give you all the trust, all the confidence to help us,’ and that’s why I’m taking this opportunity.”
Three Years to Prove Your Worth
Hernández’s signed a three years contract with the Galaxy team and it includes an option to extend the contract to four years. He will be paid an annual base salary of $6 million. L.A Galaxy will be looking for him to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Swedish striker scored 52 goals in 56 games the last two seasons.
He also said: “I’m going to be able to play in front of a lot of Mexican fans, Galaxy fans, American fans,” he said. “That’s what’s great about football. They give you a lot of opportunities.” Hernández has already started participating in the rivalry, exchanging light-hearted banter with Vela. Hernández and Vela have been close friends since they were teenagers in Chivas’ youth academy.
Vela joked during a recent interview with ESPN that if Hernández scores against LAFC, “I will score one more.” Hernández had a playful response. “It doesn’t matter if he scores or doesn’t score,” Hernández said. “L.A. Galaxy is the biggest [club] and will win more championships than them, definitely.”What’s quickly become MLS’s best rivalry game should remain the league’s most spirited “Clasico.”
