Even though Javier “Chicharito” Hernández is coming out of one of the best seasons he’s had in recent years, as he managed to score 17 goals on 20 games during the regular season of the 2021 MLS Season, he might never play again for El Tri.
It’s no lie that Mexico National Team has failed over and over on their pursuit of playing the fifth gamein a World Cup, as they’re regulars on the Round of 16 but never seem to pass that stage, and there’s no one else to blame but the players.
There’s been a lot of scandals surrounding El Tri’s players indiscipline, from the party in the hotel in Monterrey in 2010 to the 2018 incident, where Héctor Herrera, Guillermo Ochoa and Marco Fabián sneaked out of the hotel to go out to party. But nothing comes close to what Hernández did in 2019.
What’s the reason Chicharito hasn’t played for Mexico again?
During the 2019 World Cup, “Chicharito” Hernández sneaked in women to the hotel Mexico National Team was staying to throw a party for the players, something that didn’t sit well with Tata Martino after he found out, reason why he decided to stop calling Hernández as he has a more disciplined style of coaching.
