Eddie Gray has stated that Leeds United playmaker Pablo Hernandez is a class above the Championship and that he’s the talisman for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
The 33-year-old Spaniard has enjoyed a decent start to the campaign for the Whites, despite the fact it has been disrupted by an injury setback already.
He has now recovered to regain his spot in the side and he’s been directly involved in seven goals in just eight league games so far.
Hernandez has been deployed as a right-winger under Bielsa this term and will be looking to keep up his good form away to Wigan on Sunday.
Gray has waxed lyrical about the attacking midfielder, who has a wealth of experience in La Liga and the Premier League from earlier in his career.
“He’s still the main man and the man you’re looking to create things. He’s got talent that is a little bit better than the division he is playing in,” Gray told LUTV.
Hernandez often does standout in the Leeds side and the suggestion that he’s got an extra bit of quality could be the difference in a push for promotion.
The Yorkshire giants are second in the table after the opening 15 league games and have looked impressive for large spells, but the division is extremely congested right now.
They are going to need their key men to come good in the crunch fixtures and technically gifted ace Hernandez has the ability to change a game on his own.
