In which Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez is named the 2011 Tourism Ambassador for the State of Jalisco in Guadalajara, and promptly breaks down – thus making him even more infuriatingly loveable than he was before…
“You’ve come a long way little pea”
Which loosely translates as:
“Thank God I’m a footballer and I don’t have to do this kind of thing every day. I’m very nervous and excited.
“I have so many things I would like to say, words of gratitude to my family who are here and those who are not here – I want to offer an apology for possibly not being 100% as a son, a brother or a nephew, a grandchild or as a partner.
“I was a little selfish in fighting for my dreams, but I hope you are proud of me for everything I have done, because without you I would have never accomplished anything.”
Or something like that anyway.
