Get to know… Javier Hernandez
An introduction to 21-year-old striker Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez…
Where’s he from?
Hernandez currently plies his trade with Chivas de Guadalajara in Mexico’s Primera Division. Chivas are the most successful team in Mexican history with 11 titles. Having been at the club since the age of nine, Javier scored within five minutes of making his first-team debut, in a 4-0 win over Necaxa in 2006, and helped his side win the title that season.
What’s his record?
Pretty impressive. He’s scored 21 goals in 28 appearances for Chivas this term and has netted four times in as many games for Mexico. At 5ft 9in, he’s not the biggest striker in the world, but he’s quick and certainly knows his way to goal.
Where does his nickname come from?
Javier is commonly known in his homeland as ‘Chicharito’, meaning ‘little pea’, in reference to his green eyes. He received the moniker as he’s the son of Chivas legend Javier ‘Chicharo’ Hernandez, himself a top Mexican striker who played in the 1986 World Cup.
When can we see him in action for the Reds?
Not until he has received a work permit. If that is granted, Javier will join United officially on 1 July and could make his debut in a pre-season friendly against Chivas in Guadalajara.
