Leeds United playmaker Pablo Hernandez has been somewhat of a cult hero for the club since his arrival, however, Noel Whelan believes it will soon be the end of an era for the Spaniard.
What Whelan had to say about Hernandez
Whelan believes that the player could be leaving Elland Road at the end of this season.
He told Football Insider: “We are coming to the end of the Pablo era. He was injured last night but even still, he is not the go-to man anymore. When you look at the bench, and the players that come on before him, it tells a big story. I think Pablo will move on in the summer. I definitely think he will go”
Hernandez looks likely to depart
Not only has the attacking midfielder been linked away recently, but he has also suffered another injury. He is 35, and sadly it looks like the Premier League could be too demanding for him, and this is emphasised by the fact that Marcelo Bielsa has only started him twice and subbed him on eight times (Transfermarkt).
In these ten games, he has only played for a combined 274 minutes and this supports what Whelan has had to say about him not being the ‘go-to man anymore’.
Therefore, if the Spaniard does leave in the summer, it will be a sad moment for all associated with the Elland Road club, but it seems like the right time and Hernandez if he does leave, will definitely be remembered fondly for his spell at Leeds.
In other news, a player Leeds were looking at in the summer could be available in the next transfer window.
