When Javier Hernandez joined West Ham United from Bayer Leverkusen last year, there was plenty of excitement around the club.
The Mexico international carved out a positive reputation for himself in the Premier League having spent five years at Manchester United.
However, it took time for Hernandez to find his feet in East London as he was regularly played out of position in wide areas.
The 30-year-old has already had three different managers during his time at West Ham.
However, Slaven Bilic, David Moyes and Manuel Pellegrini have all struggled to get the best out of him.
This season, for example, he has only started four games in all competitions and has come off the bench in a further six.
Playmaker FC’s Matchday with Max caught up with Jamaica’s women’s team. See what happened when he met the history makers in the video below…
In that time, the striker has found the back of the net twice, and he is struggling to earn a regular spot due to Marko Arnautovic standing in his way.
Twitter account @westham_gossip tweeted earlier this week, claiming that Hernandez’s £145,000-a-week wages is causing a “toxic atmosphere” at the London Stadium.
Javier Hernandez is on £145,000-a-week making him the club’s best paid player by far and he isn’t getting regular first team football which is causing a toxic atmosphere in the club.
Is it time to let him go in January? pic.twitter.com/wgTEqcfEqi

The responses to the tweet gave off a very clear message.
Yes, he should not have been signed in the first place

Or maybe play him more and stop benching him every game?

Yes definitely, I was over the moon when we signed him probably like most fellow hammers was, but unfortunately he isn’t delivering, so BYE BYE I’d say ?

Why does this always happen at our club,can’t we just keep personal contracts private about who’s on what etc.. if then when it comes out & players/agents,start getting all jealous about what others are on,they can be reprimanded for it!

Who would want him?

Wad hoping Pellegrini might spark some life out of him, and I suppose he might do yet, but I can’t see it. Probably best saying goodbye, I only hope we get some money for him, but that’s unlikely too, imo.
