Chicharito unfazed by goal drought

Bayer 04 Leverkusen striker Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez insists his current goal-scoring troubles don't affect him.

Last season, the Mexico international was in superb form and netted 17 goals in 28 Bundesliga appearances, in addition to three assists.

However, so far this campaign he has found the back of the net only five times in 16 league games, and the last goal he scored was on matchday six at the start of October.

"I honestly don't let it bother me. I scored virtually a goal a game for ten years and I didn't think I was the best in the world then, just as I don't get depressed now because I haven't scored in a couple of months," he told the official Bundesliga website.

"What I like doing most of all is playing football. In these last few games I've had to work with the team in other positions, and I'm looking on it as a learning process so that I can become a more complete player, not just a finisher but someone who can play, take people on, turn and do different things."
