'Hope we get rid' - Leeds fans react on Twitter to Hernandez display v Wigan
By Harvey Byrne
Pablo Hernandez played 64 minutes of Leeds’ 1-1 draw with Wigan on Sunday afternoon – and fans on Twitter were left disappointed by his display.
The Yorkshire giants battled to a point at the DW Stadium in their last encounter of the Championship campaign with a Chris Wood penalty cancelling out an early Ryan Tunnicliffe goal.
Hernandez, 32, started the match against the Lancashire outfit in the number 10 position and was tasked with the job of providing top scorer Wood.
However, many felt that he failed to set-up the New Zealand international adequately and a number were highly critical of the Spaniard’s performance.
One fan stated it was like having 10 men on the pitch while Hernandez was on, while another commented on his lack of pace.

Personal opinion on Hernandez staying or going …no idea personally how anyone couldn't want him to stay for next season. #lufc

He's not a No.10 far better players out there if we want promotion next year
