Supporters of Leeds United have recently reacted to some comments from Marcelo Bielsa which were relayed by The Athletic reporter Phil Hay.

During the upcoming round of Premier League fixtures, the Whites travel to Old Trafford to take on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United (per Premier League).

In his pre-match press conference ahead of the trip to Manchester, Bielsa spent some time talking about Pablo Hernandez (per Phil Hay).

The Argentine manager claimed to know that it was ‘tough‘ for players that are not currently getting first-team minutes.

This was relayed to social media by Hay and it had lots of supporters talking.

Starting with an easy one what shirt number does Bamford wear for Leeds United?

So, what did these Leeds fans have to say about Marcelo Bielsa’s comments on Pablo Hernandez?

During Leeds’ recent 5-2 victory against Newcastle United, the Spaniard was brought on late in the second half and still managed to provide two assists (per WhoScored).

Should Pablo Hernandez be getting more first-team minutes for Leeds?

No, he's not good enough

No, he's not good enough

Yes, he's a class player

Yes, he's a class player

Over the duration of the season so far, the 35-year-old midfielder has made just five Premier League appearances for the Whites and his only goal involvements have been the two against the Toon.

In those five outings, Hernandez’s showings have been fairly uninspiring as he has delivered a weak 6.30/10 average rating, making him the Whites’ fifth-worst performer this term.

As can be seen in what these Leeds fans had to say, many of them were delighted that the Spaniard is getting minutes for the Whites’ first team again.
