Lots of Leeds United fans have been talking about an update regarding Pablo Hernandez that emerged on social media.
Super Deporte has recently reported about the situation of Hernandez, claiming that Spanish third-tier side Castellon have already contacted the midfielder regarding a potential move and have spoken directly to the player, who happens to be a shareholder of the club.
Will this be a step down for Hernandez?
But Hernandez hasn’t responded to the offers yet and is also looking to play at a higher level, having been in the process of looking at other potential options, too.
What did Leeds fans make of this news?
“Spanish 3rd division is like the English conference, he’s better than that.“
“He’s better than the Spanish third division regardless of whether he owns the club. Bottom half top division I’d say?“
“Bring him back!!“
“Just come home for another season Pablo. I’m not crying you are.“
“Should be plenty of clubs interested.”
While 36-year-old Hernandez wasn’t a regular for Leeds in the 2020/21 campaign, he was a constant part of the club’s side in their time in the Championship. He directly contributed to 24 goals in the 2018/19 season, also scoring nine goals and assisting just as many times in the 2019/20 promotion season (as per WhoScored).
Therefore, it is easy to see why fans are still so concerned over what the future holds for the Spaniard, who left the club at the end of last season.
Even though he wasn’t regularly involved in the 2020/21 season, he still managed to grab a couple of assists. So he might still be a useful player but since he’s 36 now, it is perhaps time for Leeds fans to move on from him and look forward to seeing the club sign a younger player to replace the midfielder.
