Vanney is delighted with Chicharito’s return

LA Galaxy coach Greg Vanney welcomed the return of Javier Hernandez in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with the Colorado Rapids.

The Mexican striker had been sidelined with calf problems since his brace in Galaxy’s Cali Clasico win over San Jose Earthquakes in late June and had missed 12 games during that time.

Chicharito finally returned to the field on Saturday, playing 62 minutes in the Galaxy stalemate against Colorado. Despite not scoring a goal, the 33-year-old was a threat who gave his teammates a chance and attempted two shots.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Vanney gave a positive assessment of Chicharito’s comeback performance.

“I thought he looked good. He gave us the experience we needed on a day like today, sometimes by just holding the ball up and bringing some people over, and I thought his job was good,” said Vanney.
