Former Leeds United star Pablo Hernandez doing well in Spain

Former Leeds United star Pablo Hernandez appears to be performing quite well for his new club in Spain.

The 36-year-old left Elland Road in the summer for a move back to his hometown club CD Castellon, and Leeds Live report that he has had a decent start to life.

The attacking midfielder has made seven appearances in which he has scored one goal and provided no assists as his career begins to wind down.

Nice to see Pablo doing well.

It would be fair to say that Pablo was a cult hero at Elland Road, and though he didn’t play that much last season, he played a huge role in getting the Whites back to the Premier League.

Under Marcelo Bielsa, he played 94 matches as the Argentine made him the centre of his team and usually if he played well, so did the Whites.

It is lovely to see him back in Spain at his hometown club enjoying life because he deserves that.

Some players leave places on bad terms or without ever making an impression on the fans, but Hernandez certainly doesn’t fall into that category.

Overall, Hernandez made more appearances for Leeds than he did for Valencia, reflecting how important he became to the Whites.

He was a hero in his time with Leeds, and it was nice of Leeds Live to provide a little update on what he is doing as his career approaches its end, you would think.
