Leeds United headline the night as Hernandez’s big claim is made, Rodrigo Fitness update


Good evening, Leeds United fans. Here are the headlines from your evening on Tuesday, November 17. Former Leeds favorite drops Hernandez

Former Leeds United striker Noel Whelan believes that “something was wrong” between Pablo Hernandez and Marcelo Bielsa.

Hernandez was left out of the squad for the 4-1 loss to Crystal Palace after an angry backlash after being replaced by Tyler Roberts in the loss to Leicester City the week before.

The Spaniard has since apologized for his conduct on Instagram, and could now be ready to return to the squad for the Arsenal meeting.

However, Whelan believes the clash was a “worrying sign” and that Hernandez could be placed for a spell on the bench as he seeks to reintroduce himself into the first team.

“The million dollar question is whether Pablo is involved,” he said. Football insider. “I very much doubt that anything will come out of what happened. He was kept inside by Leeds, and it will continue to be the case, but something was wrong between the manager and the player.

“If he’s not in the squad for the Arsenal game, it’s a very worrying sign that there is a bigger gap between the manager and the player.

“We know that Marcelo Bielsa is not a man to play with. He is strong in his will and in his decision making and it doesn’t matter who you are. “
