Awards keep rolling in for in-form 'Chicharito'

The accolades keep on coming the way of Bayer 04 Leverkusen's iconic number seven Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez, with January proving to be no exception.

The Mexican's impact on the Bundesliga has been extraordinary: 13 goals in 16 appearances tell only half of a gripping tale, the rest of which is yet to be narrated and, if January is anything to go by, promises to be a thriller.

At the double!

Voted the CONCACAF Male Player of the Year for 2015 for the first time, the 27-year-old is earning more and more recognition for his remarkable form, which has seen him voted bundesliga.com's Player of the Month a staggering three times this season, earning the January gong by a landslide with 63 per cent of the vote, ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Robert Lewandowski.
