Man U striker Hernandez helps 'cut crime, increase birth rate' in native Mexico
London, Dec 3(ANI): Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is so popular in his native Mexico that crime there drops when he plays and more pregnant women get excited and go into labour when the goal-grabbing striker pulls on a red shirt.
"Crimes like car jacking, muggings and robberies go down," the Sun quoted Mexico City top cop Jorge Carlos Martinez, as saying.
"It seems even the criminals want to take time off to see our hero play. Also the birth rates go up," he added.
The police chief also hopes United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will keep 24-year-old Hernandez, who is nicknamed Chicharito, off the bench as the capital is currently facing a crime wave.
Martinez said: "We need all the help that we can get."
Up to 15,000 people are murdered by drugs gangs every year in Mexico. (ANI)
