The exciting life story of Javier Hernandezbetter known to legions of Manchester United fans as Chicharito Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Hernandez joined his local club C.D. Guadalajara at the age of nine and signed his first contract at 15. Making his full debut in 2006, he impressed in the Mexican league so much so that he caught the eye of a Manchester United scout in 2009. He signed for United in April of 2010 and scored on his debut in the MLS All-Star Game on July 28. Since then, Hernandez has continued to light up the Old Trafford pitch, becoming a firm favorite with fans who voted him Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year in 2011, scoring vital goals for the club. He became the first player since Ruud van Nistelrooy to score more than 20 goals in his debut season as United clinched a record-equalling 19th Premier League title. Despite some injury concerns in the opening half of the 2011/12 season, he has continued to be a major player in the United line-up. Still only 24 years old, the 'little pea' has committed himself to United until 2016 and looks set to help the Reds to yet more glory.
