Javier Hernandez breaking records in the Bundesliga after leaving Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

Javier Hernandez is having a real impact with Bayer Leverkusen out in the Bundesliga having joined them this summer from Manchester United.

The Mexican striker is currently in such good form that he’s already setting records in Germany: he has scored in seven successive games for Bayer which surpasses the old record of six by a Mexican and that was Hugo Sanchez at Real Madrid. Plus, as not many Mexican’s have played in the Bundesliga, he’s already the highest scoring of all time.

Personally, I’m over the moon for Hernandez. He had a pretty turgid end to his time at Man United that concluded with an effectively non-sensical loan deal at Real Madrid where he didn’t play much, but he gave United fans brilliant memories.

He’s such a likeable lad, so I’m really glad he’s managed to turn his career back around and get back to doing what he does best – scoring goals. At his pomp in a United shirt, he made it look so easy but he lost that spark towards the end. Now, he’s re-ignited it in Germany and scoring for fun again.

Long may it continue for Chicharito. He’s still only 27 and has plenty of time left in his career and this is the perfect way to start after leaving Old Trafford.
