There should be one name that comes to mind when thinking about CONCACAF’s superstar, or the closest thing to it. Hernandez has played for two of the biggest clubs in football in Manchester United and Real Madrid. That trend in Germany with Bayer Leverkusen. The same club Landon Donovan left to go back to the MLS. Hernandez was a regular until the last season at United until the last season while being pretty productive and did a decent job on loan at Madrid as mostly a sub. And now he’s killing it at Bayer. Yes, he may still have some work to do on his all around game but he does arguably the two most important things for a modern forward really well, press and score goals.
Other than the Dos Santos’ no one else in CONCACAF in recent times has played for such big clubs and neither of them were really regulars. You could throw in Dempsey at Tottenham too. Christian Pulisic is certainly on the way up but has a way to go still.
So, despite lacking the glamour of many, Chicharito is CONCACAF’s best player/superstar.
