This tweet from Ayling then gathered a lot of replies from excited Leeds fans – who were quick to praise Hernandez.
Was this a good tweet about Pablo Hernandez?
To be that good at 35 is just madness. Pleasure to play on the same field as this man!! Happy birthday magic man ?? https://t.co/Qe8M12j6BH

When he signed many of us thought we had signed another journeyman along for an easy pay packet.
He has been nothing but outstanding, he gives what Leeds fans expect and that is 100% percent effort when he puts on the white shirt

Other Whites supporters, though, praised Ayling and Hernandez.
Sure he feels the same about you Bill!

1. You’ll be better at 35 because you’ll have had more years under the master, MB 2 don’t be jealous, you’ve got much better hair

You must both share the same Duracell batteries ??

What do we think?
The former Bristol City defender has played 112 times with Hernandez – so he has seen how good the former Swansea City man can be.
Since joining the Whites in 2016 on a loan that was made permanent in January 2017, Hernandez has made 150 appearances and scored 33 goals and provided 36 assists.
These are impressive numbers, and it is good to see that Ayling has publicly praised him.
