The great curiosity that will cause the duel between Guadalajara and Los Angeles will be the presence of Javier Hernandez, Mexican striker and captain of the Galaxy, who debuted as a professional with Guadalajara.
Javier Hernandez and his choice after leaving Europe
After having no activity in Sevilla, there was speculation that Guadalajara was interested in Chicharito Hernandez, many fans were really excited about the arrival of the Mexican striker.
However, that same excitement was dashed by Javier Hernandez after signing for the LA Galaxy.
Chicharito himself would like to play for Guadalajara again, as he stated in several interviews when reporters have questioned him about his future. However, it will be difficult for Chivas to match the ground offered by the MLS side.
