Former Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez had won a third consecutive Bundesliga player of the month award.
Even when the Mexican player left the Red Devils, he is still one of the top players with the highest minutes-per-goal ratios in Premier League record books.
In addition, his brilliant 21 goals in 24 games form for Bayer Leverkusen this season that made him player-of-the-month for November, December and January, looks much more superior even with Wayne Rooney’s current spike in form.
His potential for goal scoring trumps the entire United team right now, especially against the likes of big money-signing Anthony Martial, who struggled to find the back of the net earlier in the season.
However, the German side had revealed that they are prepared for life without the player amidst growing speculation of a summer switch to Arsenal, as Leverkusen director Jochen A. Rotthaus had claimed.
“We have to make the most of the Chicharito effect as much as possible,” he said.
“But at the same time, we must prepare ourselves for a time without Chicharito.”
“We must bring other stars to the fore. We cannot get lost in Chicharito mania.”
