Chicharito "Little Pea"

Chicharito "Little Pea"

I always like to say why," he said.

" It comes from my dad. They called him that because he had green eyes when he was born. They looked like peas, so they called him 'Chicharo' - pea.

"Everyone, the press and so on, called him that. He was a great footballer as well.

"When I was born I was the son of 'Chicharo', and not Javier Hernández, so they called me Chicharito, which means 'little pea'. I just inherited the name."

Javier Hernández's first season in England with Premier League champs Manchester United went extremely well.

The Mexico striker has adapted to his new team by scoring 20 club goals in all competitions this campaign.

Hernández struck 26 league goals in 62 games for former club Guadalajara and scored twice at last summer's World Cup for Mexico.
