Who is Javier Hernandez?

Despite the fact that many people now refer to him as Javier Chicharito Hernandez, the Mexican professional football player’s real name is Javier Hernandez.  Javier Hernandez is well-known for his time at Manchester United and West Ham United, where he currently plays as a striker. He was invited to the 2018 FIFA World Cup after rising to play an important role for the Mexican team.

Javier Hernandez: Birth, Parents, Siblings & Education

The footballer was born Javier Hernández Balcázar on June 1, 1988, in the Mexican city of Guadalajara.

However, he was raised in Morelia alongside his sister, Ana Hernández Balcázar, by their parents, Silvia Balcázar and Javier Gutiérrez.

As a child, it was clear that he was destined for football due to his love of the sport.

This was not entirely surprising given that he was born into a footballing family, with a father who played professional football and a grandfather who did the same, both of whom played for Mexico’s national team.

Despite the fact that it was clear that the young Hernandez would become a footballer, his parents sent him to the Instituto Piaget for his elementary education, and it was from here that he decided to begin a youth career in the sports that could be said to run in the family’s blood.

As previously stated, he was not given the name Chicharito at birth. He inherited it from his father, just as he inherited football from his father.

Because of his green eyes, the elder Hernandez was nicknamed Chcharo, which translates to “pea.” Chicharito, which means “little pea,” was then given to the younger Hernandez.

What is the net worth of Javier Hernandez?

After playing for some of the world’s most important clubs, including Real Madrid and Manchester United, Hernandez has reached a pinnacle in his football career.

As a result, it is not surprising that Javier Hernandez’s net worth is estimated to be $17 million.

His weekly wage at West Ham United is more than $185,000 (£140,000).

Hernandez had already played 101 games for his country by the time he was invited to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, and he had scored 49 goals.

Javier Hernandez: Relationship Status

The Mexican striker has previously been in a number of relationships.

It was then reported that he was dating Hawaiian actress Chaska Borek.

Nonetheless, Lucia Villalon was the next woman to openly become his girlfriend, but the relationship ended the same year.
