Hernandez began his career in 2006, playing for the Mexican club Guadalajara, before becoming the first Mexican player to join Manchester United in July 2010. He spent the 2014/15 season on loan at Real Madrid, then moved permanently to Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen in August 2015.

A Mexican international, he is his country's all-time leading goalscorer (with 48 to his name, at time of writing). He made his debut for Mexico in September 2009 in a match against Colombia and is close to reaching a century of appearances for his country.

Hernandez is commonly known by his nickname 'Chicharito' (aka 'Little Pea'), which he wears on his shirt.

 

2016/17 Match Notes & Ratings

2-3 v Southampton (a) 19th August 2017
by Gordon Thrower

Great poaching skills which gives cause for optimism in the future.

0-4 v Manchester United (a) 13th August 2017
by David Fletcher

Gave his absolute all for the team, he still had belief even though the rest did not. He was forever pressing, closing down and trying to receive the ball high up the pitch in order to get involved more. Hardly got any service from his team mates. He will be expecting much more from them in the matches to come.
