Hernandez is a committed Christian who prays on the pitch before every game, to thank God for the helping realise his dreams.
But the deep-thinking Mexican centre-forward is far from selfish in his demands on the almighty.
Hernandez also asks before every match for God to look out for his team mates and the opposition, and keep them from serious injury on the pitch.
"I always pray on the pitch before a game. It is an important routine for me but it is not superstition," Chicharito told the Mirror.
"I like to pray. I talk to God and I tell him to take care of the health of both teams because the worse thing for a sportsman are injuries and there are a lot of accidents on the pitch that nobody wants.
"I like to ask God to take care of me, because he gave me the opportunity to play."
