Pablo Hernandez continues to impress for Leeds and that led fans to declare that he has been their best player since relegation from the Premier League, but supporters have also been talking about the midfielder for another reason.
The Spaniard has enjoyed a career spanning 12 years but has never picked up a red card, despite making 458 appearances in that time.
It is some stat and shows what a well-disciplined player he is, which is exactly what is needed from a key player in a team aiming for promotion as it ensures he will always be available for selection when fit.

Despite being a good thing, many fans have reacted to it pessimistically, suggesting that he is now likely to get sent off in the next match as he has been jinxed.
One fan also pointed out that it isn’t the natural way of things for a Leeds player, referring back to a history of players who often picked up red cards, like Alan Smith.
Gaetano Berardi of the current squad is another who loves a red, with seven for Leeds alone, so it is good that Hernandez hasn’t picked up his bad habits.
The reaction below depicts fans’ reaction to the 34-year-old’s stat.
That is incredible. Not looking forward to seeing him getting a straight red on Saturday 🙈😂

Good on him. By the way, Eddie Gray played over 450 games for Leeds in 17 years and never even got booked

Incredible stat. How Un leedsly of him. He needs to rectify this soon. Berra needs to show him the way.

Last game of the season, on a yellow card, scores the winner in injury time which gets us promoted, takes shirt off to celebrate 🛑 🙏 😂
