Chicharito Hernández had a very bad 2020. The attacker was expected to be the great star of LA Galaxy in his first season at the club, but things advanced very different. After leaving Sevilla CF on January, he joined for free to the MLS side and since then played 12 games, scoring just a pair of goals.

Injuries didn’t help CH14 either, as the attacker spent many times out of the field trying to recover himself. At the age of 32, it is expected that the Mexican recovers his form quickly as he is one of the best paid players from the MLS with a salary higher than $6 million.

The last campaign was terrible as LA Galaxy didn’t even make it to the MLS Cup Playoffs, after finishing 10th the regular season on the Western Conference. Chicharito was hardly criticized, not just because of his bad performances, but as well because it was said that he spent too much time playing video games.

The attacker made a big fan of them and started to play with his friends, while streaming on social media. Maybe one day, that could make a living for him. Professional streamers or gamers earn up to $50,000 per month for spending some hours a day in front of a computer, and it seems that Chicharito has facilities to do such a thing.
