Chivas owner: We made 25,000% profit on Man Utd striker Chicharito!

Chivas owner Jorge Vergara has no regrets over the sale of Javier Hernandez to Manchester United. Vergara agreed to sell the Guadalajara-born striker to United for a fee believed to have been about £6m.

"People say it was a steal. Well, I did make 25,000% profit on him, so it wasn't that bad," he told BBC Sport.

Plus, the deal helped put Chivas on the map. "It opened doors for us," Vergara says. "It has been good for Mexico too. [Hernandez] has given people another impression of Mexico and of success here."
