Ouch! Chicarito got absolutely clattered by Philippe Mexes in the first half [Video]

We’ve heard of jockeying defenders but Philippe Mexes may have taken that term a bit too literally here.

In the first half of the glamour friendly between AC Milan and Real Madrid, the French defender straddled Mexican striker Javier Hernandez.

The abysmal challenge didn’t take up too much of the referee’s attention but there’s hardly a doubt that the wrestling move would have produced a card in a competitive game.

You can see the offence in the video above.

Cornella OG makes it 4-0 to Real Madrid, from a Chicharito rebound [Videos]

There’s no let-up from Real Madrid tonight, as they’ve matched their first leg scoreline to make it 8-0 on aggregate against Cornella of Segunda B.

Madrid’s fourth goal was a tad fortuitous, as Cornella defender Borja Lopez inadvertently scored into his own net, after Chicharito’s lob rebounded off the crossbar.

Hernandez seemed to be claiming it, which you can’t really blame him for given his lack of game time!

Cristiano Ronaldo insults Chicharito and other ‘shit’ Real Madrid players at Audi event [Video]

Cristiano Ronaldo threw his toys out of the pram at a recent Audi event with Real Madrid.

You would expect the Portuguese forward to be on his best behaviour around this time of the year with a Ballon d’Or in the balance. Santa might be watching too, for all he knows.

But Ronaldo wasn’t displaying much of a Christmas spirit as the Madrid players were split into two teams for a racing competition. To be clear, the players were put into vehicles rather than facing off in a footrace.

When he was placed in a team with second-string players including Jese Rodriguez, Nacho and Javier Hernandez, Ronaldo said: ‘Look at the shit team you give me’.

Perhaps it was a deadpan joke but it seemed more likely that he was sulking. Poor Chicarito didn’t really know how to react and was clearly a bit humiliated. When will his heartache end!

Real Madrid set to pass on option to sign Chicharito as they have Sergio Aguero in their sights [Fichajes]

Poor old Chicharito. It always seemed like he was one of the most likable players in football. But he’s about to have his heart broken for the second time in a year, according to Fichajes.

The Mexican striker left Manchester United for a loan spell at Real Madrid but the Champions League holders are going to pass on signing him on a permanent deal.

Although Javier Hernandez, to give him his full title, hasn’t done badly at the club, Madrid are looking for a top class striker and don’t see him possessing that amount of quality.

Instead they are planning to step up their pursuit of Sergio Aguero, the Argentine striker being one of the best players in the world and in the form of his life. They’re going to test Manchester City’s resolve in the summer for a player that they know has a desire to play for them.

Chicharito scores from outside the box to put Real Madrid 3-1 up at Cornella [Vine]

There was a cacophony of scoffs from skeptical football fans when Javier Hernandez joined Real Madrid on a season-long loan from Manchester United.

Already warming the bench at United, why would match-hungry Hernandez go to the European champions?

Well, perhaps to improve as an all-round striker. Previously known as a penalty box poacher, Hernandez scored from outside the box to make it 3-1 at Cornella in the Copa Del Rey tonight.

This is at least his third goal from outside the box since arriving at Real, so there’s clearly been a development there despite all the derision his decision attracted.

Good for you, Chicharito!

Real Madrid want to sign Manchester United loanee Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez on permanent deal [Express]

Real Madrid have been so impressed with Chicharito’s loan speel thus far that they’ve been convinced to make it a permanent deal, The Express claim.

The Little Pea has scored 3 goals in 4 La Liga games so far and has performed solidly overall, and Madrid are now ready to make a deal with parent club Manchester United according to the Express.

You’d think United would be happy enough with that at their end – even in spite of their current striking woes – so the only sticking point is the fee: United would want £17m as stipulated in the loan agreement, but Madrid are keen to get this down to around £12, the Express believe.

Man United loanee Chicharito (Real Madrid) scores for Mexico, celebrates like Di Stefano [Video]

Javier Hernandez continued his good vein of club form by scoring in Mexico’s 2-0 friendly win over Honduras.

In truth, Chicharito couldn’t really miss as he was give all the time in the world by a lax Honduran defence to pick his spot.

But the Man United loanee, at Real Madrid this season, made no mistake and smashed the ball into the bottom corner to claim his 37th international goal in 67 caps.

His celebration was also noteworthy, as his leap in the air bore an uncanny resemblance to Real Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano’s trademark celebration.

‘Gareth Bale has been feeling ‘depressed’ at Real Madrid, feels overshadowed by Chicharito & Ronaldo [El Chiringuito]

Spanish football show El Chiringuito love a good ‘inside the dressing room’ scoop, and on Monday’s program, former Marca editor Eduardo Inda made a pretty surprising claim about Gareth Bale’s mind state at

Inda says that the Welshmen has been ‘depressed’ over the past few weeks, and has lost his winning smile due to what he feels is a lack of attention and credit.

(Important note: ‘deprimido’ literally translates as ‘depressed’, but it doesn’t carry at all the same weight in Spanish as it does in English, what with Spaniards being a tad melodramatic. ‘A bit low’ would be more accurate).

After scoring two goals against Depor in La Coruna, Inda says Bale was left feeling snubbed, as Cristiano and Chicharito took all the limelight that day, as Madrid won 8-2.

Chicharito scored the final two goals, which were his first for the club, and that was the big story from the game, as was Cristiano’s hat-trick, and it’s true that Bale’s brace was somewhat forgotten amidst all of that.

But Inda says that Ancelotti has reassured him not to worry, after seeing him hanging his head at training, and told him ‘this will be your year’.

(El Chiringuito has a tendency to exaggerate, make of it what you will.)

Man United loanee Javier Hernandez missed absolute sitter for Real Madrid v Ludogorets [Pics]

Real Madrid brought in Manchester United striker Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez on loan on Transfer Deadline Day.

The Mexican striker has got off to a decent start, scoring two brilliant goals off the bench last weekend.

Hernandez was handed his first start in tonight’s Champions League game against Ludogorets, but struggled in Benzema’s role.

With the scores at 1-1, Hernandez somehow missed a brilliant chance from close range. He would eat these chances up when in goalscoring form at Man United.

His attempt somehow went backwards across the goal but fortunately for him Real Madrid went on to win 2-1.

Mexico coach Miguel Herrera: ‘Chicharito is becoming a better player at Real Madrid’ [Video]

Mexico coach Miguel ‘Piojo’ Herrera appeared on a Sports TV show Univision Deportes over the weekend, and spoke about El Tri’s decent World Cup campaign and how he hopes the keep taking the team forward.

One of the team and country’s stars, Chicharito, came up in the conversation, with the presenters pointing out that many people were making light of his loan move to Real Madrid, but that after his brace last weekend, not so many are making fun any more.

Herrera concurred, saying that his brace at Deportivo was ‘sensational’, and that at Real Madrid he’s becoming a better player – without doubt he already looks to have added a new string to his bow: how often did he score from outside the box for United?!

Herrera also talked about the mad memes that did the rounds of his touchline reactions during the World Cup, saying he loves them, and that his daughters always send them to him.

Manchester United loanee Chicharito blazes miles over from 15 yards for Real Madrid v Elche [Video]

Real Madrid’s game with Elche tonight was a great chance for them to build on their goals tally, as Los Blancos smashed 5 past the La Liga fodder.

Cristiano treated himself to 4 goals, Bale got one, but Chicharito didn’t manage to build on his brace from last weekend.

The Manchester United loanee had a great chance to do just that in the second half, but as the ball came to him from 15 yards out, he leaned way too far back, blazed the shot miles over and ended up on his backside.

Role reversal: he’s smashing worldies from outside the box, but missing the sitters from inside!

Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas to be dropped for Keylor Navas tonight; Hernandez to start too [Marca]

Having played second fiddle to Diego Lopez for the last 18 months, Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas regained his starting spot at the beginning of this season.

After a poor World Cup as Spain keeper, it was generally assumed new signing Keylor Navas would be given the goalkeeper gloves at Real Madrid.

However, Navas is yet to make an appearance under Carlo Ancelotti but looks set to make his debut tonight in place of Casillas.

According to Marca, Casillas and Karim Benzema will be dropped for tonight’s La Liga clash against Elche, with Navas and Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez set to be handed their first starts.

Hernandez is set to be rewarded after coming off the bench this weekend to score two late stunning goals in the 8-2 win over Deportivo.

Marca claim Ancelotti is yet to decide if Casillas will reclaim a starting berth this weekend, having conceded 8 in the first 4 La Liga games.

Javier Hernandez last scored a long ranger in 2010, it was brilliant!

We are still coming to terms with the fact that Javier Hernandez scored two long range goals for Real Madrid on Saturday, in the 8-2 win over Deportivo La Coruna.

Manchester United’s Chicharito scores first goals on loan at Real Madrid. From OUTSIDE THE BOX! [Vines & Video]

As far as we recall, Javier Hernandez did not score a long ranger for Manchester United where he made his name as a penalty box poacher of the highest standard.

So, you have to go all the way back to 2010 to see a Chicharito goal from outside the box, for his first club Chivas.

And, it was brilliant. What a strike! Enjoy!

Manchester United’s Chicharito scores first goals on loan at Real Madrid. From OUTSIDE THE BOX! [Vines & Video]

Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez, the goal poacher supreme on loan from Manchester United to Real Madrid, scored his first goals in white in the crazy 8-2 win over Depor today.

And, wait for it…both were from OUTSIDE THE BOX.

The Mexican striker scored 50 goals for United, all of which bar perhaps one exception were scored near enough the goal line, in and around the 6 yard box.

Now in Madrid, it looks like he’s taken a leaf out of Cristiano’s book, and has decided to shoot on sight, from long range.

And his first was an absolute belter, which sat up for him just right as he rifled into the top corner.

The 2nd took a deflection which took it over the keeper, but again, it was outside the box!

He’s got a decent powerful shot, hopefully he starts using it more often.

Chicharito: ‘I’m lucky to be at Real Madrid, best team in Europe; Manchester United didn’t believe in me’ [MARCA interview]

Javier Hernandez has spoken of his delight at his loan move to Real Madrid in an interview with MARCA, in which he all but burns his bridges with parent club Manchester United.

There’s a conspiracy as to the real reason Madrid took Hernandez on loan, but the Mexican striker feels he fully deserved the chance, saying,

‘If I got here it’s for a reason; my stats speak for themselves.’

‘Every player dreams of getting to Real Madrid; I know why I’m here, because I’m a great player and a great person.

I’m fortunate to be at the best team in Europe, I’ll work and learn to give the best for the institution, which is the most important.

‘It’s a united and hard-working dressing room. It’s a team that knows what it wants, knows what it can aspire to and what’s most important; we’re going to achieve great things.

He says former United man Cristiano Ronaldo has taken him under his wing:

“Cristiano, for example, is treating me really well, we have a lot of things in common: we both played at United and we have a lot to talk about.’On his final year at United, Hernandez says ‘there was no confidence in me. The patience and perseverance I showed brought me here. It was a tough year because they didn’t believe in me.’

On Ancelotti, Chicharito says ‘he knows me well from the time we coincided in England, when he was manager at Chelsea. His trust motivates me and pushes me to work hard. 

Coincidence? After Man United’s Chicharito arrived at Real Madrid, Perez’s company sealed deal in Mexico [ESPN]

ESPN Espana have produced a possible reason beyond the purely ‘futbolistico’ for Real Madrid’s loan signing of Man United’s Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez.

Let’s get it straight: even without this conspiracy theory, Madrid taking a Man United reserve on loan, when they’d been in for Falcao, was highly curious to say the least.

It goes like this: Yesterday, Thursday September 18th, Florentino Perez’s construction company ACS sealed a deal worth €432 million to build 4 hydro-electric plants, and renovate 5 hydrodesulphurizer units, in Tula, Mexico.

This comes just 2 weeks after Madrid’s unexpected, and barely explicable loan signing of Chicharito, so the Spanish media have put 2 and 2 together and gotten 5.

Why would taking Chicharito to Real Madrid influence a business deal? Because he’s the Lionel Messi of Mexico, the undisputed ‘crack’ and idol of the people; a huge coup for the whole country of Mexico.

And for Madrid: a new market for shirt sales in a country of 118 million; you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.

But it’s not an isolated suspicion: ESPN add that in June, Perez’s company entered Colombia to negotiate a 25 year deal to build a mega highway, ‘Conexion Pacifico’, the contract for which was completed last week, to the tune of 700 million euros.

In the meantime, of course, Madrid signed Colombian idol James Rodriguez, who Perez yesterday admitted he didn’t know much about, and that he was signed on the back of his ‘good World Cup’.

Who knows, it’s probably just two massive coincidences…



Man United’s Chicharito gave Carlo Ancelotti a wink on his Real Madrid debut, Italian wasn’t impressed

During the summer transfer window Manchester United loan Javier Hernandez to Real Madrid, and last weekend, in the crushing home defeat to city rivals Atletico, Chicharito made his Los Blancos debut.

Chicharito replaced Karim Benzema with under 30 minutes left on the clock, and the Man United forward’s main contribution in the match was to pick up a booking.

Now a brilliant GIF is doing the rounds showing Hernandez’s cheeky interaction with Real coach Carlo Ancelotti just before he got on the pitch.

As the Italian stood on the touchline before Chicharito’s substitution, the Mexican flashed his coach a brilliant wink that was caught on camera.

Rather than being amused, Ancelotti instantly turned his back after the gesture, only to raise his left eyebrow in apparent disdain.

Manchester United Mexican striker Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez joined Real Madrid on Transfer Deadline Day on a season-long loan.

Having signed in 2010, the nippy 26 year old striker scored on his competitive debut against Chelsea in the Community Shield final.

Hernandez came off the bench to score in a 3-1 win, with his shot rebounding off his face before finding the back of the net.

On TV recently he was shown his first Manchester United goal and he couldn’t help but laugh.

Lovely Chicharito clip: Man United loanee was the only Mexico player to stop & sign autograph for disabled fan

During his appearance on Spanish football show El Chiringuito last night, Man United loanee Chicharito arguably revealed more of his true self in 1 hour than in 4 years at Manchester United.

The fact he shares a language with the Spanish naturally facilitates such a close and intimate discussion, and El Chiringuito made the most of their time with him, to talk football, family and life.

The show brought up a clip from the World Cup, in which Hernandez was the only player from the Mexico squad to stop and sign an autograph for a disabled fan, who had travelled all the way from Charlotte in the USA to watch El Tri in Brazil.

Hernandez made the young girl’s day, and probably her whole month too, as she broke down in tears of joy, struggling to get the words ‘He’s my idol’ out.

Who’s chopping onions in here?

Manchester United loanee Chicharito: ‘Real Madrid is the best club in the world’ [Video]

Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez made an appearance on Spain’s most popular football talk show El Chiringuito last night, in which the Mexican striker gave an in-depth and candid account of his life and career with presenter Josep Penderol.

Chicharito was so effusive in his praise for Los Blancos that it was easy to forget that he’s merely on loan from Manchester United, and is by no means sure of a long term future at the Bernabeu.

The United loanee will have ingratiated himself to watching Madridistas no end when he asserted that ‘Real Madrid is the best club in the world’ (2:20 on full video), while he also unequivocally said Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world in his opinion, just ahead of Lionel Messi.

In terms of his own objectives, Chicharito laughed off the notion that he’s come simply to sit on the bench and play back-up to Benzema, saying,

‘No player in the world trains to be a substitute.’

Real Madrid’s Javier Hernandez: “Cristiano Ronaldo is best in the world, Leo Messi is after him”

Real Madrid signed Javier Hernandez on loan from Manchester United on Transfer Deadline Day.

The Mexican striker gave his first interview since signing for ‘Los Blancos’ in which he spoke about his desire to be a starter.

Aged 26, Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez also weighed in on the age old argument regarding who is better: Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

Hernandez took the side of his new teammate, saying “He (Cristiano Ronaldo) is the best in the world. After him is Messi.”

Javier Hernández: Real Madrid move from Man United a “dream come true”

Likely to be forgotten when Radamel Falcao signs for Manchester United this evening, is the departure of Javier Hernandez to Real Madrid.

Chicharito described the move from Manchester United to Real Madrid as a “dream come true.”

And, the Mexican striker refused to pin down what he will bring to the Bernabeu, referencing the defeat to Real Sociedad on Sunday night.

If Hernandez does get on for Real Madrid, goals seem likely with so many midfielders to provide the ammunition.

Man United loanee Chicharito presented with Real Madrid No. 14, does keepy-ups on Bernabeu pitch [Video]

After passing his medical, Javier ‘Hernandez’ was given a tour of the Bernabeu by club President Florentino Perez, and presented with the number 14 shirt, which he also wears for Mexico and parent club Manchester United.

Afterwards, Chicharito was brought out onto the Bernabeu pitch to do the customary keepy-ups for the cameras, amid minimal fanfare.

At his press conference, Hernandez said it was a dream come true to wear the white of Real Madrid, and that he’ll give his all to ensure the club continues winning titles.

It’s a big chance for Hernandez to rediscover his form of 2010/11, after a couple of frustrating seasons at Old Trafford.

During the afternoon of Transfer Deadline Day Real Madrid confirmed the loan signing of Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.

Chicharito joins Real Madrid for a £1.5m loan fee, with an option to buy at the end of the season.

‘Los Blancos’ uploaded a montage video of Javier Hernandez to their official Youtube channel.

The 26 year old nippy Mexican striker looks set for a career in benchwarming. Good luck regardless.

DONE DEAL! Man United’s Javier Hernandez joins Real Madrid on season long loan

Transfer Deadline Day looks set to be a busy one for Manchester United, already bringing in Radamel Falcao on loan and now farming out Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez to Real Madrid.

Hernandez has reportedly been told that he won’t be considered a starter at Real Madrid, but the loan deal does come with an option to buy at the end of the season.

Having struggled to break into the first team at Old Trafford since an electric opening 18 months, Hernandez will attempt to earn a starting berth from the bench at Real Madrid.

Real Madrid will reportedly pay Man United £1.5m as a loan fee.
