Mexican international striker Javier Hernandez descended into tears when discussing the end of his time with Chivas Guadalajara, the Daily Express reports.
Hernandez made a name for himself with the Liga MX side between 2006 and 2010, only for his career there to be curtailed by injuries towards the end, The Express explains.

“It was a very difficult day,” Hernandez said fighting back tears. “It was not easy.”
