There’s been a lot of change at Leeds United this summer, both coming in and going out.

One move, though, didn’t sit well with a certain member of the Leeds camp – Pablo Hernandez. Speaking during Leeds’ pre-season trip to Australia, the 34-year-old defender spoke about losing such a key part of the team in Pontus Jansson and how he wasn’t too happy about the deal.

He said: “I lost a team-mate and a friend but this is football.

“This can happen. Teams change players. I have lived through this a lot of times in my career. This is football. Obviously, this is a big loss for us but other players come. Obviously, I am not happy because we lost him. But this is football.”

Leeds fans were quick to agree with the midfielder, with a lot of them using the opportunity to call out the club for their transfer policies and how it’s leading them down a dangerous path.

Those sentiments hold particular clout as they are pretty thin when it comes to centre-backs at the moment. Although that one line about players coming in was enough to get one fan excited, hopefully, that doesn’t mean Leeds are done just yet when it comes to bringing in players.

  • Time will tell. I’m split down the middle with Pontus. When he’s good he’s brilliant but when he petty, moody and being a downright pain then he’s bad. The Villa game he was completely out of order and Bielsa was absolutely furious.
    We’ve played without him and come through. Let’s move on.

    • Absolute shocker getting rid of pontus best player defender they had. copper is a liability and the keeper enough said moving on together more like moving backwards

  • The blunder that Casilla and Cooper made, costing us the playoffs, would never have happened had Pontus been playing. Both the ball and Casilla would have been in the stand. I loved the guy’s commitment and endeavour. That said, if there had been a fall out between him and Marcelo, which one I would have preferred to go is a no brainer.
