Mexican forward Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez has done it again! For the third time in a row, Bundesliga has named him Player of the Month after his extraordinary impact in Germany's soccer league highlighted by 13 goals in 16 appearances with his team Bayer Leverkusen.
Chicharito was named November and December Player of the Month, and was also bestowed the honor of being 2015 Concacaf Player of the Year, and for one week, Player of the World by the Associated Press.

According to news outlet Supersport, Hernandez, 27, was named Player of the Month by a landslide vote of 63 percent, ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and extraordinary striker Robert Lewandowski, who scored five goals in nine minutes for Germany's number one soccer club Bayern Munich.
Chicharito scored his first brace of 2016 against Hannover, helping Leverkusen win their first game of the year and move up to fourth place in the Bundesliga, putting them on the path of return to the UEFA Champions League next season.
"Chicharito was really on fire in the last few minutes and that's why you must never take a player like him off," admitted Leverkusen coach Roger Schmidt. "He's always capable of deciding a game on his own."

According to Tribal Football news outlet, Bayer Leverkusen are already preparing to lose their newly-found star Chicharito.
Liverpool recently said they wanted him now, but that if Leverkusen did not accept, they would offer about US$32 million for him in the summer.

Chelsea and Arsenal also expressed interest in the Mexican player, who last season played on loan with Real Madrid and before that with Manchester United. However, both teams underestimated his abilities and opted to bench him most of the seasons.
"We have to make the most of the Chicharito effect as much as possible, but at the same time, we must prepare ourselves for a time without Chicharito,” said Bayer's marketing and communication director Jochen A. Rotthaus.
"We must bring other stars to the fore. We cannot get lost in Chicharito mania," he added.
