Although at present the Club Deportivo Guadalajara has suffered a lot from being able to sign footballers, throughout its history it has not always been this way. In fact, the team remembers great signings that have contributed a lot to the history of the Sacred Herd.
Surely one of those that would have been a success at the time, due to his football level, would undoubtedly have been that of Luis the ‘Matador’ Hernández, forward that everyone in Mexican soccer fondly remembers, especially for the great level shown in the World Cup in France 98.
Precisely before that Soccer World Cup, from Chivas they launched an offer for the Mexican striker, but the board of directors at that time put an unusual condition to sign the player: that he cut his hair.
The player’s long hair was one of the characteristics that accompanied him throughout his career as a professional footballer, it was his identity, which is why despite the fact that his transfer was practically agreed, the player refused to play for the Flock:
“Before the World Cup and before going to Tigres, my representative told me that Chivas asked for me and at that time I told him yes, no problem. But they have one condition. The president says that you go to Chivas but cut your hair. Well, Chin …. to his ma … No, no “
– Luis Hernandez
Thanks to this unusual request, Luis Hernández was not a Flock player, undoubtedly one of the worst decisions that Chivas could have made in its history.
