New franchise want Chica

The manager of new MLS franchise Los Angeles FC has admitted that he would love to pair new signing Carlos Vela up with fellow Mexican Javier Hernandez.

Bob Bradley, who was sacked by Premier League strugglers Swansea City last year after just a few months in control of the Welsh club told ESPN that he would be delighted to sign Hernandez - if West Ham would be willing to let him go.

Responding to a question from anchor David Faitelson regarding LAFC's interest in the player - which was first mooted by club owner Will Farrell during Vela's unveiling ceremony - Bradley confirmed that he would be delighted to add Hernandez to his roster.

"That one is left with the ownership," said Bradley. "From the standpoint of the manager Chicharito is a big player, a big personality and a great goalscorer.

"So if Will Farrell and the rest of the ownership can bring that commitment, I can figure out a way to get him on the field and help him score goals."

Hernandez has struggled to settle in London since returning to the UK following spells in Spain and Germany. He has scored just five goals in the opening half of the 2017/18 campaign and has been unable to secure a first team spot since David Moyes arrived at the club.

Los Angeles FC are the newest team in the MLS pyramid, having only been formed three years ago. Their home matches are staged at the 22,000-capacity Banc of California Stadium.
