Leeds fans pay tribute to Pablo Hernandez

It is not exactly breaking news that Leeds United fans love Pablo Hernandez.

The 32-year-old has been a class act during his time in the English game, and has contributed two goals and three assists in 16 Championship appearances this season.

The former Spain international scored Leeds’ opener in their 2-1 win over Middlesbrough last time out, and was keen to pay tribute to the club’s supporters when interviewed after the match.

Hernandez, who is valued at £2.3m by transfermarkt.co.uk, will actually see his current deal at Elland Road expire next summer, but the Leeds fans are desperate for him to sign another one-year contract.

It is not exactly the worst tactic in the world to hail the supporters following an important win, but Hernandez was already an incredibly popular figure in the eyes of the fans.

If the former Champions League semi-finalists are to challenge for promotion this season, Hernandez will have a big role to play.
