Then, FocusOnLeeds posted a 45-second clip packed full of nutmegs from Hernandez.
Those two videos sum up how important Hernandez is to Leeds in a nutshell.
He’s scored six goals and added six assists in the Championship this season from 28 appearances and 25 starts.

That’s the least that he’s been used since he arrived at Leeds but while he’s getting older, his powers aren’t waning yet.
He bagged 12 goals and added 12 assists last season as Leeds almost secured promotion.
We’d love to see him in the Premier League with Marcelo Bielsa next season and we’re sure that he’s still going to be an influential player for the club until his contract runs out in 2022.
Here are the best reactions from Leed fans to the official top 10 goals update from Leeds United…

A man whose standards are so high that any time he misplaces a pass Leeds fans claim he’s in decline.
Best in the league.

The best player I’ve seen at Leeds in my lifetime 💙💛

Not sure there’s a player in my lifetime with a better top 10. Including Strachan, Yeboah, Kewell and others in that.

Our most important signing since our return to the Championship.
His reached legendary status at Leeds and will always be remembered would love to see him offered a position at the club once his playing days end but I think his got at least another 10 years in him yet!

Me when we signed Hernandez – some Spanish guy that nobody has ever heard of, and will soon be gone. Me after after a dozen games – 🎶 Pablo Hernandez plays for United with Kiko…🎶
