Bayer Leverkusen's Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez has become the first Mexican soccer player in European history to score goals in seven straight games, media reports highlighted.

He also made Bundesliga history by becoming the highest-ever Mexican scorer, with 10 goals in seven games. Mexican forward Pavel Pardo held the previous record with four goals in 71 Bundesliga appearances.

“The Bundesliga star has been on fire with his goal scoring and has already set several records along the way,” said ESPN, adding that Hernandez is currently the best Mexican striker in the whole of Europe.

For the executives at Leverkusen, Chicharito has exceeded all expections on and off the field.

"He's a legend in Mexico," Leverkusen CEO Michael Schade said recently. "He has exceeded all of our expectations."

Hernandez joined Leverkusen after a stint with Manchester United this season and after a season on loan to Real Madrid, whose coaching staff had him benched practically the whole year.

Schade said Hernandez has boosted all aspects of the club, which has been observed by scouts around the world.

The Premier League's Chelsea is apparently interested in acquiring Chicharito's services, and so is a new U.S. team Los Angeles F.C., which is scheduled to begin playing Major League Soccer in 2018.

The Mexican forward has also had a major impact on the club's social media accounts, prompting Leverkusen administrative staff to open a Spanish-language Twitter account.

“Hernandez has proven to be a completely carefree commercial package for Leverkusen,” Schade added.
