VIDEO: Manchester United striker stars in his own cartoon

Mexican striker Javier Hernandez takes on a group of Japanese gangsters in the new animation.

A NEW ANIMATION based on the fictional adventures of Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez has been created.

‘Chicharito Unidos’, created by Australian cartoonist Eddie Mort, sees the Mexican striker call upon his football friends after he finds his hometown team in disarray.

Returning to his boyhood club in Guadalajara, Chicharito finds the team has fallen apart in his absence. With a few quick calls to his fellow superstars in world football, Chicharito tries to put the team back together in time for kick-off,” the synopsis reads.

Look out for cameos from a David Beckham-type English footballer and a character who bares a striking resemblance to Lionel Messi.
