Leeds United fans have been reacting to news regarding the future of Pablo Hernandez.

Hernandez has certainly established himself in Elland Road folklore since he arrived at the club in 2016, winning three straight Player of the Year awards, and scoring one of the more memorable and important goals in their recent history with his late winner against Swansea City at the tail-end of their promotion season in 2019/20.

Can you remember where Leeds finished in these league seasons? First up: 2018/19

However, it was announced this morning that his time at the club, along with defender Gaetano Berardi, is set to come to an end, and it will do so with the Spaniard having scored 36 goals and contributed 41 assists across his 174 appearances (unless they choose to give him a send-off on Sunday against West Bromwich Albion).

Having been such an important figure to the club, it was no surprise to see so many supporters who were left incredibly emotional to read the news online:

“Pablo was not only a beacon of hope during the dark years but, essentially, dragged us into . He’s a #LUFC legend, now and forever. Somebody get started on a statue.”

“Pablo Hernandez has given us so much during his time at Leeds Utd. Lots of contributions & brilliance. Our club had 16 yrs of hurt & when it needed someone to carry the lantern & lead us through the dark to promotion, Pablo was the man. What a hero. What a player.”
“Literally without Pablo, the dream wouldn’t have become a reality! Will leave Leeds an absolute hero”
“This has got me right in the feels. Berardi has bled #LUFC and Pablo is one of my favourite players of all time. Unforgettable figures in our history”

Should Pablo Hernandez be offered a coaching role at Leeds?

Given his impact at the club, you wonder if the club have got any form of permanent tribute lined up, perhaps a statue?
