Hernandez: Corona thriving at Twente


Nunez: Chicharito knows his role

Real Madrid

Corona, Layun leading the way for Mexicans abroad

Jesus Corona continues to impress in the Eredivisie with Twente.
Jesus Corona continues to impress in the Eredivisie with Twente.

One lesson for Mexicans playing abroad this season is that a move to a major club won't exactly mean immediate success.

This month, Raul Jimenez has had little time with Atletico Madrid, while Javier Hernandez has become irrelevant at Real Madrid. While there are exceptions, like Hector Herrera in Porto, it appears as though much of the recent progress abroad has arrived from players in midlevel clubs or smaller leagues.

Chicharito would be best served by leaving Real Madrid

Chicharito Hernandez has made just one appearance for Real Madrid since the new year.
Chicharito Hernandez has made just one appearance for Real Madrid since the new year.

The hoopla at Real Madrid over the recent signing of Norwegian starlet Martin Odegaard might have brought a pang of woe for another striker on the squad, Mexico's Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez. Not so long ago, the forward enjoyed the celebratory buzz as one of Manchester United's most promising young players. Now that fanfare has died away, ahead lies an uncertain future for Hernandez.

Though only 26, at what should be the prime of his athletic career, Hernandez has been reduced to playing...

Malaga sporting director says Guillermo Ochoa staying put

Malaga sporting director Mario Armando Husillos believes that Memo Ochoa will not be going anywhere this winter.

Malaga sporting director Mario Armando Husillos said on Wednesday that the club have no plans to shop Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo "Memo" Ochoa in this transfer window.

"[Memo] is going to stay in Malaga, there is only a little time left [in the transfer window] and I just don't see us getting any kind of great offer nor do I see us contemplating it," Husillos told ESPN. "I think he will be here, we are not going to get into any problems. In football, what you have leftover from today is never enough...

Real Madrid's Emilio Butragueno praises Javier Hernandez

The ESPN FC crew debate whether Real Madrid's lack of squad rotation will cost them as the season progresses. Alejandro Moreno believes there is plenty of depth at Madrid.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley believes Real Madrid's rough patch was exactly what they needed to get ready for Champions League and the end of the La Liga season.

Manchester United on-loan forward Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez has responded well during his limited playing-time this season, said Real Madrid director of institutional relations Emilio Butragueno on a recent club trip to Mexico.

"[Hernandez] is an incredible player, a fighter and at Real Madrid that virtue is essential," the former Blancos forward said of the Mexico international, who joined Madrid from United in a season-long loan deal sealed just as last summer's transfer window ended. "The...
