Luis Hernandez said that dos Santos made the right decision in choosing to play for LA Galaxy.
The former Mexico striker who also played for LA Galaxy believes that playing in the MLS will allow dos Santos to get more playing time than what he was having in Europe.
Giovani dos Santos has yet to cement a place in the Mexican team since his selection has been on and off. The last time he played for Mexico was in the Gold Cup last year and has yet to be selected for the national team this year. However, he has been announced in the 40-players selection for the Copa America.
Luis Hernandez stated that it is not easy to adapt to the MLS. Although it is not glamorous as the Spanish or Brazilian league, not all players succeed in it. He has praised dos Santos adaptation and believes that he can still progress as a player. He believes that playing regularly will allow Giovani dos Santos to stay in form and also improve his sharpness.
Speaking about the MLS, he said that the league has a good football level and that it is becoming more and more visible each year. He said that you just need to compare the results in the CONCACAF Champions League to see the difference.
Luis Hernandez played with LA Galaxy during 2000-2002 and stated that he had good memories of this period. Indeed, he made 40 appearances for the MLS club and scored 15 goals. For him, football is a game and should be enjoyed irrespective of the league where you are playing. His best memories were in the 2001 Copa MLS final where LA Galaxy lost 2-1 to San Jose. Hernandez scored the only goal for LA Galaxy in the match.
