The only thing that Chicharito Hernandez earned this season was questions. At the end of the tournament, he was not even starter on the team and they could not get to the Playoffs. The Los Angeles Galaxy were one of the worst team of the Major League Soccer and Hernández was one of the reasons.
Hristo Stoichkov, a former FC Barcelona player that won a lot of awards, talked about the situation of Chicarito at LA. He said that the player arrived to the Galaxy because of the director of the team. As he is Mexican, he wanted a Mexican striker on his team, according to Stoichkov.
It is hard to say if this was the actual intention of Los Angeles Galaxy director, but the truth is that when they lost Zlatan Ibrahimovic, they did not doubt about signing Chicharito Hernandez when the difference between them is huge. The shape, the performances and their careers are not the same.
Zlatan is a strong number 9 while Chicharito is faster and has another characteristic that makes him a good player. That’s why the sayings of Hristo are not at all fake. It could be possible that LA did not think about what the team needed and hire a star just to replace Zlatan after his departure.
