It is not easy, a lot of time, patience, we are in 2022, the MLS was not as big years ago as it is now, these are things that require time to develop and are things that must enter people’s minds, it is part of the life, competition is something that makes you better, we are neighboring countries, I am Mexican representing MLS, I am captain against a team from Liga MX,” he added.
Yes ok, the MLS gives greater complications to the Mexican teamsAccording to Hernández, there is still a long way to go to match the level.
There are results that are a consequence of how the league has improved in recent years, but the important thing is that we learn, adopt the positive things and improve what needs to be improved. Liga MX has been around longer than MLS, but we can win, that’s why we’re here, we want to help this league improve,” he asserted.
Accustomed to being antagonists, Carlos Vela and Javier Hernández will break the dynamic and will share ranks on the MLS All-Star team.
Happy to be with Carlos, to share a dressing room with him, he has been a great partner, he is a great friend, we have had many experiences, fun moments, happy to be with him, “he said.
DOES NOT DISCARD A CALL TO THE TRICOLOR
I’m always open, I’ve tried to do the best in my head to continue doing the best for my team and if the calls come, that’s up to the coach, I’m still open to the possibility otherwise I would have already withdrawn from the national team, I’ll continue doing in the best way on the field, also in my opinion and we will see in the future”, he concluded.
