We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United
Paul Robinson believes that Pablo Hernandez still has life in his Leeds career despite a stop-start season that’s seen him make just two Premier League starts.
He’s only played 12 minutes in the last four games and is currently out injured again.
Robinson thinks that while his time as a regular starter might be over, he is one of the best impact subs in the Premier League.
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Robinson said, “I don’t think it’s his final season like some people are saying. I think he still has cameo parts to play.
“We’ll see less and less of him dominating games but that doesn’t mean he can’t make an impact.
“He was outstanding last season, changing games, and even when he came on as a sub he’d change the game and then get subbed off again.
“You can’t put a price on an impact sub like that. You’ll do well to find anyone better at that role in the Premier League.
“I think that we’ll see more of him in the second half of the season if he can get fit and I still think he can be an impact sub next season.
“He can still pick out passes, there’s penetration and movement and to have that will be big for Leeds.
It’s not been the season Hernandez would have wanted so far and he’s been linked with a move back to the club that he co-owns, Castellon, in Spain.
We think it would be a tragedy if he went without getting a proper send-off from the fans.
