There’s no longer any room to question whether Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez is back on his historic goleador track. In addition to the great run of form he has shown after his move to German squad Bayer Leverkusen, now the Mexican pea has one more thing to boast about: He’s the 2015 CONCACAF Player of the Year.
Second place was awarded to Costa Rican player Bryan Ruiz, while third place was given to Mexico’s captain Andrés Guardado. It is important to note, however, that CONCACAF only counted participation in official national team games; otherwise, it would be impossible to understand how Costa Rican Real Madrid player Keylor Navas didn’t make the list.
Chicharito was also just named the MVP of the Florida Cup, which took place this month, adding just one more trophy to his list of accomplishments.
The Mexican continues his adventure in Germany this Saturday, when his squad faces Hoffenheim for a regular Bundesliga match. Bayer Leverkusen currently sits at fifth place, two points shy of the Champions League position.
The rest of the season will be an exciting one for Chicharito. Not only is he fighting to be top scorer of the Bundesliga (he is currently fourth) but his squad will be looking for the title of the UEFA Europa League.
