In signing Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez in August 2015, Bayer 04 Leverkusen recruited one of Mexico’s most famous sons and a star as beloved across the American continent - and beyond - as he is in his homeland.

As such the 27-year-old is a sought-after figure in the advertising world, and is the face of soft drinks, shaving companies and sportswear firms. Furthermore, he has a gigantic fan base and boasts over 6 million Twitter followers and almost 3 million on Instagram.
