The MLS released the ranking of the players who sold the most jerseys throughout this year. The first place and after being in third place in 2019 went to Carlos Vela. After Carlos Vela, surprisingly second place went to Chicharito Hernandez and LA Galaxy. It is surprising to see Javier Hernandez in that place knowing of the sporting failure but everything has an explanation.
Javier Herandez sold more jerseys this year than players like Josef Martinez or Gonzalo Higuain. Second place in this ranking is very important for the LA Galaxy's future consideration of Hernandez. If there was any doubt about whether Hernandez had been a failure in the LA Galaxy on the economic side, with this ranking there are no longer any.
The reasons why Javier Herandez was second in this ranking is that the shirts sold throughout the year are counted and not only in the last season. Javier Hernandez's arrival at LA Galaxy caused a revolution in the market. Chicharito Hernandez came to be Ibrahimovic's replacement and that caused a great sensation among LA Galaxy fans.
Although he sold more jerseys than Gonzalo Higuain, the reason was that Higuain came to Inter Miami for this last season and Javier Hernandez has been in LA Galaxy since the beginning of the year. It is also a great achievement for the Mexican player to continue showing that he is one of the most marketable players in the world.
