The center forward has scored nine goals and establishes himself as the leader of the scorers’ table in this championship. Chivas de Guadalajara wanted to have him on their squad, but the player acknowledged that reaching the Sacred Flock would have been something he would regret for the rest of his life.

In the midst of Henry’s irregularity, the Chivas de Gudalajara tried to take him away from their greatest rival, but the Mexican striker had other plans.
“I have never liked to go wrong from any place, (if I went to Chivas) I was not going to feel that it was me If I made that decision to leave, I was going to regret my entire career for having made that decision and I think I did it perfectly ”revealed Henry Martín in an interview with Record.
