Werder Bremen Defender Tasked With Man Marking Chicharito Has No Chill

Assigned to man-mark Chicharito during corners, Werder Bremen's Niklas Moisander valiantly stuck to the task.

In the 82nd minute of Bayer Leverkusen's Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen, the fourth official indicated a Bayer subtitution: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez was coming off to be replaced by Stefan Kiessling. With the scores level at 1-1 and Werder defending a corner, you can forgive defender Niklas Moisander for sticking to his task of man marking Chicharito like it was a God-given assignment.

Chicharito tries to get to the byline to be withdrawn, but Kiessling pulls him back before following him out of bounds. Chicharito didn't score on the day, so it was job well done for Werder and Moisander. Moisander is probably sneaking onto Leverkusen's flight to Madrid for their Champions League match against Atletico right now, both his eyes locked on Chicharito and trying to grab a fistful of shirt.
