'Completely false': Chicharito denies reports he wants to switch West Ham for home soil

The Mexican striker has shot down reports suggesting he is ready to leave England for his childhood club Chivas.

'I am 100% committed to helping improve the situation we're in at West Ham.'
'I am 100% committed to helping improve the situation we're in at West Ham.'

WEST HAM STRIKER Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez has denied reports he wants to leave England to re-join Chivas.

Hernandez began his career with Chivas before leaving his hometown club in 2010 to sign with Manchester United.

The Mexico striker subsequently took in spells at Real Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen, before moving to West Ham in July for a £16 million fee.

The Hammers are off to a rocky start in the Premier League, sitting in 18th place and having recently hired David Moyes as manager after sacking Slaven Bilic.

With turmoil at his club, reports in Mexico stated the striker is looking to make a fresh start at Chivas and maintain his form ahead of this summer’s World Cup.

But the 29-year-old took to Twitter to swiftly reject any suggestion he was looking to leave London.

“Completely false,” Hernandez wrote of the reports, translated by OmniSport.

“I am 100% committed to helping improve the situation we’re in at West Ham. I’ve always said that I have Chivas in my heart, but I have never asked to leave West Ham at any time.”
