Ex Manchester United superstar Chicharito Hernández confirms he’s leaving LA Galaxy as contract won’t be extended.
The LA Galaxy striker will be available as free agent now as the Club are presently looking for new striker on the market who will replace the former Manchester United super sub.
The 35-year-old striker from Guadalajara scored 39 goals in 82 matches over all competitions for the Galaxy from 2020 to 2023 but suffered a torn right knee ligament last June in a US Open Cup quarter-final to end his campaign early.
“Life becomes exciting when you allow yourself to change and evolve to new challenges,” Hernandez posted on Instagram. “Thanks to everyone who was involved in my journey these 4 years. Thank you for everything @lagalaxy.”
Hernandez was a two-time MLS All-Star and led LA Galaxy in scoring in 2021 and 2022, netting 18 goals last year and 17 in 2021.
“In four seasons with the Galaxy, Javier was a passionate leader for our club on and off the field. We wish him all the best moving forward.”
Hernandez played six Premier League campaigns for Manchester United, scoring 37 goals in 103 matches.
