In summer 2019, "Sevilla'' announced the transfer of Chicharito. The club paid "West Ham" 8 million euros for the Mexican forward. By the way, fans can find the football result of the matches of this team on the site of sports statistics.
In general, it seemed that the Mexican forward was able to strengthen the Andalusian squad. He was already 31 years old, but many were convinced that the frisky striker was still capable of having a couple of great seasons. However, Sevilla's reliance on the experienced forward did not justify itself.
During the 2019/2020 campaign, Chicharito scored just 1 goal for the club in La Liga. He also distinguished himself once in the Europa League. When in 2020 there was an offer to sell him to the MLS to the "Los Angeles Galaxy", the team management did not think long.
The player completely failed to meet expectations and was virtually useless on the field. Therefore, the decision to sell him looked logical. By the way, the results of all football matches involving the Los Angeles Galaxy, where Chicharito moved, are also presented on the site of sports statistics.
As it turned out, "Sevilla" became the last club in the European career of the Mexican. He ended it not on a high note. But in the U.S., the footballer had a few great seasons and proved that he was written off early.
Why didn't Chicharito play at "Sevilla"?
It is clear that Chicharito was not expected to be the main star of the club's attacks. But his experience, speed and skill didn't go anywhere. They would have been very useful for "Sevilla". By the way, if you are still following this team, you can watch live football tonight directly on a verified site with statistics.
If highlighting the main reasons for the Mexican's unsuccessful performance, it is impossible to get past:
- Distrust on the part of the head coach. Julen Lopetegui quickly became disillusioned about Chicharito. Therefore, if initially he regularly put him on the field, then the number of his appearances noticeably decreased closer to the winter.
- Weak motivation of the forward. The player practically did not give his all in training. He stopped taking proper care of himself, and it had a negative impact on his physical condition. As a result, Chicharito was unable to show the same results as before.
- Lack of mutual understanding with teammates. Because of that, the Mexican's play was characterized by many mistakes and inconsistencies. As a result, he was not useful on the pitch.
It is not surprising that the club management quickly decided to let Xavier go. Both sides have only benefited from this.
It is easy tonight to follow the live football matches of this team on the sports statistics website. Here you will find all the meetings with "Sevilla". Although Chicharito did not leave a noticeable trace in the history of this team, he regularly showed his high class in many other clubs where he played.
