Leeds fans are still fuming that Pablo Hernandez wasn’t nominated for the Championship Player of the Season award.
The EFL awards ceremony was held on Sunday night with Teemu Pukki picking up the prestigious accolade.
Despite Leeds sitting in third place in the division, they didn’t have a player on the shortlist for the Player of the Season award.
Pablo Hernandez was the name that sprung to mind for Leeds fans with many claiming that the 33-year-old was overlooked when the EFL were making their decisions.
The Spaniard has netted 12 goals already this season whilst also getting 11 assists.
Pukki was a worthy winner as he tops the scoring charts in the Championship with 26 strikes but Leeds fans argue that Hernandez was deserving of at least a nomination.
Nominated alongside Pukki were Billy Sharp and Che Adams; several supporters on Twitter have been voicing their opinion that Hernandez deserved a place amongst those stars.
Here’s what Leeds fans had to say on Twitter…
How has Che Adams been nominated for POTS and Pablo Hernandez hasn’t. ??♂️
