The 27 year old Mexican, Javier Chicharito Hernandez, has been earning stardom, these days. Being a sweet achiever of limelight in the last few days, the little pea has been breaking records lately. His never ending goal galore has been making news all over the world.

This has made the world question LvG upon his decision of letting him go. Some believe that it was smart move to sell him off as the manager clearly mentioned that he wasn’t a part of his philosophy. While the majority believes it was foolish to let him go since Chicharito was a great finisher and often provided golden last minute goals.

Termed as ‘super sub’, Hernandez was a fan favourite too, but destiny had different story written for him as he was sold on a permanent deal to German side, Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

The move to Germany has worked wonders for the Mexican as he has already scored 17 goals in 20 games for the side. Chicharito became the first Mexican to score a Bundesliga hat-trick in Leverkusen’s 5-0 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach on Matchday 16.With ten goals this season, Chicharito is the top-scoring Mexican in Bundesliga history. Against Eintracht Frankfurt on Matchday 13, Chicharito netted the first brace by a Mexican in the history of the German top flight.

Chicharito has scored a brace in all three competitions he has played in for Leverkusen this season (Bundesliga, UEFA Champions League and DFB Cup). Since the start of October, Chicharito has scored more goals (14) than his former club Manchester United FC have managed.

With 42 goals in 78 appearances for Mexico, Chicharito needs only four more strikes to equal Jared Borgetti as El Tri’s highest-ever goalscorer. With an average of 0.53 goals per game, Hernandez has a higher strike rate than any of his nation’s top ten forwards.

With Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez scoring for fun since joining Bayer 04 Leverkusen from Manchester United FC in the summer, it is no wonder people e voted him #BundesligaIdol.
