Chicharito Hernández has left the LA Galaxy. The former Manchester United and Real Madrid player has taken to Instagram to say farewell after four years with the MLS club.

“Life becomes exciting when you allow yourself to change and evolve to new challenges. Thanks to everyone who was involved in my journey these four years. Thank you for everything LA Galaxy,” wrote Chicharito.

Where next for Hernández?

Hernández did not confirm what his next destination would be. He is now a free agent and can negotiate with any club in the next winter transfer window. The veteran striker will also join the Kings League Americas as president of Olimpo United.

Hernández’s spell in MLS with LA Galaxy

The 35-year-old striker had his ups and downs with the Los Angeles Galaxy and without a doubt, one of his regrets will be missing out on the MLS Cup title.

Hernández arrived in MLS in 2020 from Spanish side Sevilla, becoming a franchise player for the LA Galaxy and with the great responsibility of filling the void left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

In total, he played 73 MLS regular season games for the Galaxy, scoring 37 goals and registering seven assists in that time.

In the playoffs, he only played two games (without scoring), with the quarter-final round being the furthest he got with Greg Vanney’s team.
