Leeds United striker Tyler Roberts has opted to snub teammate Pablo Hernandez in a player debate involving Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale.
35-year-old playmaker Hernandez has been in superb form this season and the Spaniard is set to gain promotion to the Premier League from the Championship.
The former Valencia and Swansea City man has been a loyal servant to the Yorkshire side since arriving at Elland Road in August 2016.
Appearing in 28 league games this season, Hernandez has scored six goals and provided six assists this term, making his impact in Marcelo Bielsa’s side a key one.
Roberts, who plays alongside the Spaniard, was asked via Leeds’ official Twitter account, who was better out of his teammate and Madrid star Bale: “I have got to go with Bale.
“Pablo is a special player and done a lot of great things. Bale is just in a different world to most players in the world, isn’t he? So it has to be Bale.”
Roberts has struggled to gain starts for Leeds this term, making just 14 appearances in the Championship thus far.
It’s pretty clear that Bale certainly has a bigger name in football than Hernandez, but the Spaniard has had a superb season and he should gain as much plaudits as possible.
At 35, the midfielder will be keen to have a final swansong in the Premier League next term, and he will undoubtedly be relishing the chance to return to action, having seen the Championship given the green light to return on June 20.
