Pablo Hernandez has revealed that joining Leeds United is the best decision he’s made in his career.
The 33-year-old playmaker has played at the highest level in the Champions League and the international stage with Spain, but has admitted how pleased he is to have moved to Elland Road.
Hernandez made the switch to the Yorkshire giants back in 2017 and has been a key player since.
The attacking midfielder is leading the club’s promotion charge this season in the Championship, scoring 12 goals and supplying 11 assists in 32 appearances.
His side currently sit second in the league table in an automatic promotion spot, but there are still seven more games remaining.
“Coming to Leeds is the best decision I’ve made in my career,” Hernandez told FourFourTwo magazine.
“This city deserves a Premier League team. We take 7,000 away fans to most games. You don’t realise before you come here what the relationship between club and city is like. This is a sleeping giant and we want to change that.”
Hernandez has had quite the career so far and to rank his Leeds switch right at the top is a sign of how much he is enjoying his time with the club.
He’s been the outstanding attacking threat in Marcelo Bielsa’s team and it’s a farce that he was omitted from the Championship Team of the Year.
The creative maestro is usually one step ahead with his movement and vision, while his contribution in front of goal can’t be understated too.
Hernandez has stepped up amid injury problems in attack throughout the season and he would be a key experienced player next year if they are playing in the Premier League.
