Leeds United loanee Izzy Brown has heaped praise on team-mate Pablo Hernandez, admitting that the Spaniard inspires him more than anyone else at the club, report Leeds Live.
The Chelsea man is still yet to make an appearance for the Whites despite moving on a season-long loan back in the summer, but is nearing a return to full fitness.
“You see him do things and you don’t believe it,” Brown said of Hernandez.
“You see him do one touch round the corner and wonder how he’s played that pass that cuts you out of the game.
“You can see on matchdays that he brings so much to the team.”
Brown made his first appearance for the Whites in an under-23 fixture against Birmingham City during the international break, getting 45 minutes under his belt.
Since moving to Stamford Bridge from West Brom, Brown has been sent out on four different loan spells including with Brighton and Hove Albion last season and with Huddersfield when they won a shock promotion to the Premier League.
Leeds bounced back into the automatic promotion places on Tuesday night thanks to a 1-0 win against Reading at Elland Road.
They will be hoping to maintain that form when they come up against fellow promotion chasers Sheffield United this weekend.
It is no surprise that Hernandez is the man Brown chooses to learn from most.
The Spaniard is a cut above all other attackers at the club as far as ability goes. When he plays to his best, there is no better side in the league.
If Brown can learn a thing or two from him, then Leeds will have another excellent attacking option on their hands.
