Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez Breaks Down In Tears During Training Session

LA Galaxy forward Javier Hernandez couldn't hold back tears during a recent training session as he continues to try and recover from injury.

The 33-year-old has been in scintillating form of late.

He scored a brace in the club's 3-2 win against Inter Miami on the opening day of the MLS season and has since netted another nine goals in the league, including a hat-trick against New York Red Bulls.

But despite a promising start to the 2021/22 campaign, the former Manchester United striker has not featured for the Los Angeles-based club since picking up a hamstring injury on June 23.

The Mexican suffered the injury while doing a warm-up before their clash against Sporting Kansas City.

He is clearly working hard to get back to full fitness and has posted a number of motivational clips on his Instagram, but Hernandez appears to be struggling of late.

As you can see in the below video, Chicharito is consoled by his trainer after breaking down in tears.

He captioned the clip: "We always go through difficult moments, through difficult situations and it is up to us to take it as something negative or take advantage of the situation and see it as a great motivation to give 100%.

"The decision to continue and continue is in you."

Hernandez has enjoyed his time in LA since his move in January 2020 but his transfer to the MLS was an emotional one.

The 33-year-old called his father to tell him the 'European dream' was over following a transfer to Galaxy.

"It's almost certain that I'm going to LA [Galaxy]," he said. "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. I know you guys feel it and we're gonna look at the bright side and it's going to be amazing.

"But it was 10 years, that's what makes 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."
