Many Leeds United fans have heaped praise on midfielder Pablo Hernandez after recent footage via the club’s official Twitter account.
Former Valencia man Hernandez has been in superb form this season for Marcelo Bielsa’s side, contributing with six goals and six assists which have helped the Yorkshire side sit top of the Championship standings at present.
With the season currently at a standstill due to the current off-field crisis, Leeds fans are having to wait to see if their side can hold on to top spot and an automatic promotion place.
Prior to the postponement of fixtures, Leeds were on a run of five consecutive wins, and it will be interesting to see if The Whites can return to form when football returns.

Hernandez will be key to such good form, having performed to such a high level this term for the Elland Road outfit.
The Spanish midfielder, who celebrates his 35th birthday on Saturday, joined Leeds in 2016 and he has since gone on to make 148 appearances in all competitions.
Four seasons in the Championship with Leeds will see the former Swansea City man hoping to gain a shot at Premier League football next season.
Reacting to a tweet on the club’s official Twitter account, celebrating the midfielder’s birthday through footage of some of his finest moments, fans offered high praise and below are some of those tweets….

And just about every goal is ‘Leeds are back in it’ or ‘Leeds take the lead’. Not just wonder strikes but important goals too. Giant.

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.
