Watch this extreme man-marking as Niklas Moisander follows Chicharito off the pitch even after he was substituted during Bayer Leverkusen 1-1 Werder Bremen.
The former Man Utd striker was being marked tightly by Werder’s Finnish defender at a corner kick when his number went up to be subbed.
Amusingly, Moisander follows Chicharito off the pitch, cracking a smile when the Mexican stops to explain what’s happening.
One can only wonder how far Moisander might have taken his man-marking duties had Chicharito not deigned to fill him in.
Might he have followed him into the dressing room showers? We can only speculate.
Still just 28 years of age, Javier “Chicharito” Hernández has scored an impressive 27 goals in 50 Bundesliga matches across two seasons at Bayer.
Little wonder he’s such a marked man, but it should go without saying that he ceases to be a goal-scoring threat the moment he leaves the pitch.
Perhaps someone ought to explain that to Moisander.
