Hamburg - He may not have found the net against Hamburger SV on Matchday 9, but Javier Hernandez was full of praise for the Bundesliga and his team-mates following Saturday's 0-0 draw at the Volksparkstadion.
In an exclusive interview with bundesliga.com, the Mexico international shares his thoughts on the stalemate against the Red Shorts and reveals how he has settled into life in Germany...
bundesliga.com: Javier Hernandez, you've been in Germany about two months now. What's your opinion of the Bundesliga?
Javier Hernandez: I'm very happy in this league. I like it a lot. That's why I try to get used to it and to the way that we play. In this game we were the better team. Unfortunately we didn't score a goal but we didn't concede either, so there are some mixed feelings.
bundesiga.com: What do you think about the stadiums in Germany?
Hernandez: The league is good in everything. They are improving a lot and that's why I'm here. I know it's a very competitive league. You can go to any stadium and you're going to have a hard game. It's the same at home. I like this league a lot.
Hernandez: No, I don't know them, I just play against them. I've never been a team-mate of them. The only South Americans that I'm in contact with are my team-mates.
bundesliga.com: People in Mexico are very interested in Bayer 04 Leverkusen because you're playing here...
Hernandez: I'm very happy that a lot of Mexican people are following this club because I'm here. I'm very thankful to them for supporting me and keeping an eye on my training and my games.
bundesliga.com: What can you achieve with Bayer Leverkusen this season?
Hernandez: We need to think game by game. We've only picked up a point today, but we could have picked up two more. We need to think about Roma from today and see what we need to improve.
bundesliga.com: Your team-mates say that you're a very cool, easy-going guy. How would you describe yourself?
Hernandez: Exactly in that way! I try to have a good relationship with my team-mates so that we have a good dressing room. That's the most important thing. We're all together and we have the same goals on the pitch.
