It’s the news we didn’t want to hear. Pablo Hernandez won’t be fit for another three weeks after picking up a hamstring injury before the international break at Norwich. Garry Monk today confirmed that Hernandez will be missing for key fixtures that include Rotherham, Liverpool and Aston Villa.

Hernandez had a slow start to Leeds life before coming into his own with the change of formation. His first goal came away at Cardiff in a 0-2 win, a stunning effort that sealed the game late on. A few weeks later he latched onto a Eunan O’Kane ball to sweep home the second and eventual winner against Barnsley.

The news isn’t good but as Monk said, “that’s football”. Chris Wood’s hamstring injury was an example of what can go wrong if not rested properly, nearly three months out last season. Hopefully we can get him back and firing then sign him up in January when his loan deal is due to expire.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
