'Best footballer that ever lived' - Many Leeds fans drool over player for display v Millwall


Pablo Hernandez’s name was a notable omission from the Championship team of the season announced earlier this week. Quite why the Leeds United maestro missed out is unclear, given the level of his performances this season. Hernandez was very good in his first United campaign, comfortably the best player at the club in his even better second, but he has been consistently outstanding in his third this season. While some Leeds players have been affected by the occasion and the automatic promotion pressure in the last few matches, Hernandez has shone like a beacon. He stood head and shoulders above the rest in today’s dramatic 3-2 win against Millwall at Elland Road. Following Patrick Bamford’s fluffed penalty, the Spanish attacking midfielder levelled the scores by coolly converting Luke Ayling’s cross to make it 1-1 and was at the heart of everything Leeds did as they dominated the match. He put the gloss on a colossal personal performance by scoring his second to secure the three points with a sliding finish to Tyler Roberts’ cross. Little wonder fans were drooling over another masterclass from the 33-year-old.
