For the second consecutive year, LA Galaxy designated Chicharito as Player of the Year. The striker had a great goalscoring campaign with the club, managing to bag 18 goals and 2 assists in 32 games - a personal record for Hernández, putting him as the fourth highest scorer in MLS at 34 years old.

It’s raining awards for Chicharito

In addition to being chosen as the Player of the Year, LA Galaxy announced that ‘Chicharito’ also won the awards for the top scorer, naturally. Added to this duo of trophies for the Mexican striker came the Humanitarian Player of the Year award.

This accolade was given to Hernández for a variety of contributions to the community. He delivered speeches to the players of the academy, as well as to the players of the Cal State Dominguez Hills University women’s team during Mental Health Month which earned him the award and respect of the community.
