Javier Hernández, commonly known as Chicharito, lives in the Unites States since he joined the MLS to play for LA Galaxy on January 2020. He was then playing for Sevilla FC, when the American team decided to pay more than $9 million to sign him in an historical transfer, as he left Europe after a decade.
Hernández played for top teams in the past, as Manchester United, Real Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen, West Ham, Chivas, and, of course, Sevilla. Since his arrival in the U.S., he made a radical change in his life and he started to be very near to one of his greatest passions.
Chicharito became a big fan of Los Angeles Lakers NBA franchise, and he was invited to the Staples Center several times before the COVID-19 pandemic. Dreams become true; he wrote in his Instagram account with an image of him in the stadium when he was invited to a game.
The Mexican attacker is a big fan of the Lakers and of LeBron James as well. Recently, he uploaded an image in the pre-season of him training in his house with the jersey no. 23 of the historical basketball legend. A passion that he found at the NBA and that he has in the same city in which he actually lives.
