Javier Hernandez Tells His Father The 'European Dream' Is Over In Emotional Phone Call

Javier Hernandez Tells His Father The 'European Dream' Is Over In Emotional Phone Call

Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez emotionally called his father to tell him the 'European Dream' is over following a transfer to LA Galaxy.

The Mexican forward spent the first half of this season at La Liga outfit Sevilla but he's made the move stateside in recent days.

Chicharito has spent over a decade playing in Europe and footage has emerged of him telling his father he's making a return to North America.

The 31-year-old tell his father before breaking down into tears:

"It's almost certain that I'm going to LA [Galaxy].

"Everything is perfect dad, it's only that... well it's like the beginning of my retirement you know?"

"We are retiring from the European Dream."

His father attempts to argue that his career isn't over but the Premier League winner goes on to explain further.

"I know dad but look, what I mean is that we're saying goodbye to a career that we put a lot of effort on.

"But it was 10 years, that's what making me nostalgic and cry. It's not that I can't do it, it's just saying goodbye to this beautiful experience and to a part of me that's no longer going to be there.

"Also, this is another dream, it's different, of course, but it isn't easy. But we're going to be closer, I'm going to see you guys a lot more."

The diminutive forward has been criticised for likening leaving Europe to 'retirement', but his commitment on the pitch cannot be doubted given his track record.

Hernandez enjoyed most of his European success while at Manchester United.

He left the Premier League for Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 and reignited his career in the Bundesliga.

Following 28 goals in 54 games, he returned to England with West Ham United in 2017 but never replicated the form he showed at Old Trafford.
