Chicharito Hernández in numbers: According to his salary, he charges half a million dollars per goal scored

A bad investment? Between injuries and drought in the face of the frame, Javier Hernández is very expensive for the MLS club due to his poor performance and scoring quota.

Chicharito Hernández's stay at LA Galaxy has not been as expected. The Mexican, the great absentee from the MLS and Liga MX All-Star Game, is one of the elements that earns the most money, but in sports he is very far from expected with 12 goals in 22 games in the season and a half in the US. Because he has not played even 50 percent of the games since he arrived in 2020.

According to figures released by MLS on player salaries, Chicharito is the second highest earning footballer behind Carlos Vela, with $ 6 million, that is, each of the 12 goals he has scored since his arrival has cost the Galaxy half a million dollars.

Injuries have been the protagonists of Javier Hernández Balcázar's stay in soccer in the United States. Although he has three injuries, these have been a long recovery time and that has meant that he has not been on the field in 26 of the 48 games that the Galaxy have played since the top scorer in the history of the Mexican National Team reached the team.
